French DJ Scorned For Stupid "Twerk" Remark To Ballon d'Or Winner

French DJ Scorned For Stupid

One viewer, Sean Walker, tweeted: "Lyon striker Ada Hegerberg, first female Ballon D'Or victor after scoring over 250 career goals at the age 23, asked to twerk on stage in front of footballing giants and the public watching".

Named as the inaugural victor of the award, Hegerberg was asked by the main host David Ginola and French house DJ Solveig if she wanted to perform the provocative dance in celebration.

Hegerberg is a three-time Women's Champions League victor with French side Lyon and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season.

"Disgusting and really ruined her moment she deserved. Most importantly congratulations to Ada".

Hegerberg also added that she wasn't upset with the question. "This is a huge step for women's football".

Solveig stunned viewers by asking a visibly embarrassed Hegerberg if she fancied twerking in celebration.

Hegerberg was named the UEFA Women's Player of the Year in 2016 and has won the French league, Coupe de France and Champions League three times apiece as a member of powerhouse Lyon.

Football journalist Jason Pettigrove branded Solveig "f***ing pathetic", while hoards of other social media users also slammed the DJ.

The 23-year-old beat the likes of Denmark' Pernille Harder, Lyon team-mate Dzsenifer Marozsan, Brazilian forward Marta and Australia's Sam Kerr to claim title on Monday.

"It's all about how we respect women's football".

French teenager Kylian Mbappe, who is not 20 until next month was awarded the Raymond Kopa Trophy for the world's best young player.

She stepped away from playing with Norway's national team, citing longstanding frustrations over the state of women's soccer there.

The men's award was taken out by Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric, ending a decade of dominance by Modric's former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

After 62 years, a female soccer player was finally honored with the Ballon d'Or award, which is presented to the best soccer player of the year.
