Hope Solo: Sepp Blatter 'grabbed my ass' at soccer awards

Talking to Expresso, the United States of America shot-stopper claimed that Blatter grabbed her from behind just moments before they were set to go on stage.

She posted: "For the past few days, I have been thinking about all the uncomfortable situations myself and/or my team-mates have experienced throughout the years with trainers, doctors, coaches, executives and even team-mates".

She said that sexual harrassment at the hands of male officials was a common problem in women's football.

The female giraffe even got her own website and apparel line as excitement built for her calf's delivery. It seems that his mother has been for a while, ready to be pregnant again.

Solo said it came in January of 2013, right before the two went on stage to present an award.

Solo said she's had issues of harassment with teammates in the past, but didn't indicate any further details.

"I've seen it in sports".

Marseille's Evra banned from European competition until June 30
The club went on to thank Evra for his impact since joining in January but accepted it was impossible for him to remain. Guimaraes were also fined €5,000 for a pitch invasion by supporters.

When asked why she had never brought it up previously, Solo admitted it is because she usually like to take it up with the person directly, rather than flush it out to the press. "I don't know why more players don't speak out". I've seen it among players in the locker room. She said she's disappointed in her colleagues who have been victims but who have not spoken out about their own experiences. "I wish more women, especially in football, would speak against it, about the experiences, because some of those people still work [in football]".

The Guardian contacted the player to expand on what had happened and she told them: "I was in shock and completely thrown off". I didn't get to tell him directly, 'Don't ever touch me!' That's the way I've always handled things. She had to pull herself together quickly to give the award to Wambach. The 36-year-old was suspended for six months by U.S. Soccer for calling Swedish players a "bunch of cowards" and has not returned to the team since.

The 81-year-old resigned in 2015 and was subsequently banned for ethics breaches. In 2004, he was criticized for saying women players should consider wearing more revealing uniforms, such as skimpier shorts, to bring more attention to the game.
