Hegerberg on CL fInal: I never imagined I'd be here again

Lyon striker Ada Hegerberg admits she’s gone from a “very low point” to “feeling like a kid again” after putting 20 months of injury struggles behind her to play in the Champions League final against Barcelona.

The Norway striker was the reigning Ballon D'Or winner when she ruptured her ACL in January 2020 but hopes of getting back on the field later that year were destroyed when she fractured her tibia after returning to training.

This Saturday, however, Hegerberg will compete in her first final since coming back last October, a huge reward after more than a year and a half of physical and emotional struggles.

"It's everything to me, I feel like a kid going to training every day. I never imagined myself being in this position a year ago," Hegerberg told Sky Sports News

Obviously, I was dreaming to get myself through those tough moments, but it's just such a joy. All the hard work, the disappointments… we've come a long way. On a personal level, the past months and past weeks have been a joy and now being able to play another final again."
