The Spanish Jenni Hermoso, a member of the team that won the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, asked herself this Monday from what or who do they want to protect it? by leaving her out of the national team squad for the first two games of the Nations League.
“I would like to make something very clear, today an attempt was made to argue that the environment would be unsafe for my colleagues when at the same press conference it was announced that They don’t summon me to protect me. Protect me from what? Or from whom? “, the scorer asked herself on her social networks.
Hermoso has played with the Spanish team in 69 games and has scored 40 goals, but new coach Montse Tomé did not include the player in her list to face Sweden and Switzerland with the argument that she wants to protect her from all the media noise generated by the kiss that Luis Rubiales gave him during the celebration for winning the World Cup.
Hermoso returned to Mexico more than a week ago to rejoin his club, Pachuca, with which he has had two brief participations in the Apertura tournament. The Spanish player declared herself surprised by the new events surrounding the national team this Monday.
The world champions released a statement in which they insisted on their “will not to be summoned for justified reasons” for the women’s soccer team, and assured that they will study the possible legal consequences to which the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) exposes them by putting them on a list after asking not to be called up.
Hermoso commented that they have been looking for months, weeks, for the same protection that they have not been able to find within the RFEF, but the same people who ask for their trust are the ones who launched a list with players who asked us to be called up. “The players are very clear that it is another strategy of division and manipulation to intimidate and threaten us with legal repercussions and economic sanctions. Another indisputable proof that nothing has changed today and that confirms the reason why we are fighting and how we do it.” we are doing,” he added.
Jenni Hermoso, who has tried to stay focused only on soccer to regain her usual form and help her team in the Apertura tournament, expressed support for her teammates who, she said, They have been surprised and forced to react to another unfortunate situationcaused by the people who today continue to make decisions within the RFEF.
Spain is preparing to begin its participation in the Nations League, qualifying for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This Friday it must face Sweden in Gothenburg and on the 26th against Switzerland, in Córdoba.
