Sepp Blatter accused of sexual assault by a female soccer player, us

She reports the incident to have happened at the 2013 Ballon Dór awards.

In an interview with the daily Portuguese Expresso, Hope Solo, goalie for the american team, football, accuses Saturday, Sepp Blatter of sexual assault.

Hope Solo, capped more than 200 times at worldwide level by the United States, accuses former Federation Internationale de Football Association president Sepp Blatter of sexual harassment. She was presenting with the former head of the soccer organization, Sepp Blatter, who she said grabbed her. "This allegation is ridiculous", he said.

Speaking about her own incident, Solo explained what happened to her at the prestigious trophy ceremony during the interaction with Blatter. "I had to quickly pull myself together to present my team-mate with the biggest award of her career and celebrate with her in that moment, so I completely shifted my focus to Abby".

"I had Sepp Blatter grab my ass".

"It's out of control, not just in Hollywood but everywhere", Solo said, referencing the wave of sexual harassment and assault allegations against high-profile men in entertainment and politics, which was triggered by a scandal involving movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. I didn't get to tell him directly 'Don't ever touch me!' That's the way I've always handled things.




"For years, in the past, female players date and end up marrying their college coaches, which obviously a coach should not be doing, especially with a young player". On his account Instagram, she wrote, with the hashtag #MoiAussi: "the past few days, I think back to all those uncomfortable situations that I and my co-équipières have lived for years with coaches, doctors, personal club..." "I don't know why more players don't speak out".

"I'm actually very disappointed with the women who haven't spoken about it in the sports world..."

Solo went on to add that sexual harassment was rife in all walks of life - claims she said she had witnessed with her own eyes - and stated that more needed to come forward with their stories to combat the "rampant" issue.

He has won five elections as president of Federation Internationale de Football Association from 1998 until 2015, was forced to step down and banned by Federation Internationale de Football Association amid a corruption scandal.

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