Hermoso says Spain squad announcement shows ‘nothing has changed’

Jenni Hermoso expressed her belief that the decision to include players who are boycotting the Spanish women’s team in upcoming games is evidence that nothing has changed within the country’s federation (RFEF). This comes after the resignation of the RFEF president due to the Women’s World Cup kiss scandal. Despite the majority of Spain’s World Cup winning squad being selected, the players have announced that they will continue their boycott, which was initiated after Luis Rubiales kissed Hermoso during the trophy presentation ceremony. If the players refuse the call-up, they could face fines and suspension of their federation license under Spain’s Sports Act. Victor Francos, the head of Spain’s government national sports agency, stated that if the players do not show up, the government must enforce the law. Hermoso, who was not called up for the squad, expressed that the players were caught off guard by the call-ups and were forced to respond to another unfortunate situation caused by those in power within the RFEF. She believes that this is a strategy of division and manipulation to intimidate and threaten the players with legal and economic consequences. Hermoso emphasized that this situation is further proof that nothing has changed within the federation. The RFEF has not yet responded to requests for comment. In an earlier statement, the federation acknowledged the need for structural changes and the necessity to identify those responsible for the players’ grievances. Montse Tome, the new coach of the national team, suggested that Hermoso was left out of the squad due to the intense media attention she has received. However, Hermoso questioned who she needed protection from, as claims were made about the federation providing a safe environment for her colleagues to return. She expressed her confusion and asked, “Protect me from what? And from whom?”
