Why are the women of Spain’s soccer team threatening to quit?

The Spanish soccer players on the national team have threatened to quit if the coaching situation does not change, stating it is affecting their health.


Though they are experiencing quite a bit of backlash, 15 women are adamant about their stance. They will no longer participate on Spain’s national team unless something changes with the coaching “situation”.

U.S. national star Megan Rapinoe has expressed her support of the women on the Spanish team, but the players are not getting a lot of support within their own country.

At the moment, nothing has been said about exactly what led the women to go to this extreme, but they have said that it is affecting their overall wellbeing and thus, their health. The players are willing to accept the consequences, possibly never able to play on the national team again.
