Jenni Hermoso, who came under the eye of the press a few weeks ago for the controversial non-consensual kiss given to her by Luis Rubiales, the former leader, has been excluded from the Spanish team.
“I want to make something very clear: today there was an attempt to argue that the environment was unsafe for my colleagues when it was announced at the same press conference that they would not be calling me to protect myself. Protect me from what? “Or by whom?” the goalscorer asked herself in her social networks.
It should be noted that Hermoso played in 69 matches for the Spanish team and scored forty goals. However, new coach Montse Tomé did not include them on his list for games against Sweden and Switzerland.
The reason for his decision, as he explained, was that he wanted to protect her from all the media noise that would arise from the kiss during the World Cup celebration.
The World Cup winners expressed their “will not to be called up for the women’s football team for legitimate reasons” and assured that they will study the possible legal consequences to which the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) exposes them by including them on the list in the one asked them about not being there.
Hermoso said that they have been looking for the same protection that they could not find in the RFEF for months and that the same people asking for their trust published the list of players who asked us to be called.
“We players are very aware that intimidating us and threatening us with legal consequences and economic sanctions is another strategy of division and manipulation.” “Another indisputable proof that nothing has changed today and that confirms it the reason why we fight and how we do it,” he added.
