Megan Rapinoe and her outrage at a judge’s ruling.


Megan Rapinoe is one of the top stars of the women’s team of United States. Last season she got tired of scoring goals: such is the case that she was the top scorer of the 2019 France World Cup, which she won with her country, and the winner of the Ballon d’Or. She also converted the first goal in the final of the Copa del World, in front of the local cast.

The American was awarded last year in Milan with the FIFA The Best award for the best player of the last season, in which she made history by winning the World Cup in France. Rapinoe, best player and top scorer in the French World Cup, triumphed ahead of her compatriot Alex Morgan, from Orlando, and England’s Lucy Bronze, from Olympique Lyon. In that same ceremony, the Argentinean Lionel Messi was also awarded at the Teatro La Scala, in Mil {an, with the The Best award given by FIFA.

The Reign FC wheel was in the news in the last hours: it is thatHe showed all his anger after the opinion of a judge rejecting the claim of the world champions for discrimination.

The claim to the American Federation it had to do with being able to increase their winnings and get the same amount of money as the male players or get closer to it -something that does not happen at present-, although the decision of the judge Gary Klausner ended up leaving it without effect, to the indignation of Rapinoe and company.

“I was shocked by the verdict and the explanation. Undoubtedly, we will appeal and move on.”, indicated one of the best players on the planet in statements to ABC’s Good Morning America, noting that they will continue the fight.

In his opinion, Klausner considered that the women’s team rejected in the past a payment offer with structures similar to those of the men’s team, which had to do with a method of earnings per party, and therefore decided not to give rise to demand.

To the latter, Rapinoe replied: “We were never offered the men’s team contract and certainly not the same amount of money either. If I win a dollar every time I play and a man wins three, just because he plays 10 games and he only plays three, I win 10 dollars and he nine. I’m not sure how that makes me make more money, “she closed.
