Hope Solo accuses ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter of sexual assault

The sexual harassment scandal pervading public life has spilled over into football with Hope Solo, the best-known goalkeeper in the women's game, making accusations against none other than former FIFA president Sepp Blatter. Can I talk about that? "It was at the Ballon D'or one year, right before I went on stage".

In an interview posted online, Solo was asked whether sexual harassment had been normalized.

"I'm actually very disappointed with the women who haven't spoken about it in the sports world ..." I've seen it among players in the locker room. "Yes, everybody has their individual decisions, and it is uncomfortable, but I wish more women, especially in football, would speak against it, about their experiences, because some of those people still work there and some of the players still act in these behaviours", she said. It can happen all across the board, it can happen between women, it can happen anywhere. "I've seen that", she added.

The Swiss official ran FIFA with an iron hand and oversaw a period in which football's premier tournament was hosted in Asia for the first time and he paved the way for it to be held in Qatar in 2022. It's rampant, it's not just in Hollywood, it's probably all over the place. "I don't know why more players don't speak out against it". Female players are pretty, if you excuse me for saying so, and they already have some different rules to men - such as playing with a lighter ball.

Solo made reference to the fact that female players sometimes married their USA college coaches "which obviously a coach should not be doing, especially with a young player".

Blatter also famously argued in 2004 that players could boost the popularity of the women's game by wearing tighter shorts.

Blatter could not immediately be reached for comment by the AP, but the embattled former head of soccer's governing body told the Guardian newspaper: "This allegation is ridiculous".
