40: Anja Mittag
Club responsibilites were Mittag’s sole focus in 2018. She retired from international duty with Germany last year and the impact on her form for Swedish club Rosengard has been positive. She scored 17 league goals and six more in the cup, proving that her eye for goal has not dissipated, although defeat to Gothenburg on the final day denied Rosengard both the title and a Champions League spot. There was personal consolation for Mittag in the form of the Damallsvenskan golden boot.
Jonas Eidevall, FC Rosengard manager:
“Anja has a great instinct as a forward. The moment a defender loses her concentration she will attack like a cobra. She is practically two-footed and can therefore score goals from a lot of angles and situations. This season she has showed all that have doubted that she still is a top player.”
