Hope Solo claims disgraced ex-FIFA head Sepp Blatter sexually assaulted her

FORMER Fifa president Sepp Blatter has been accused of sexual assault by former United States of America goalkeeper Hope Solo.

Solo was at the ceremony to present teammate Abby Wambach with the women's player of the year award. "Can-I-talk-about-that-" target="_blank">told media outlet "Expresso" that Blatter grabbed her rear at an awards ceremony. "It was at the Ballon d'Or, right before I went on stage... it [sexual harassment] has been normalised". Solo and Blatter presented the Federation Internationale de Football Association women's player of the year award to Solo's USA national team teammate Abby Wambach at the ceremony on January 07, 2013, in Zurich.

"I was in shock and completely thrown off", Solo told the Guardian of the alleged assault.

Billie's cellphone was found in a dumpster hours after she disappeared and her auto was found in a nearby street five days later. But Brown told agents he blacked out and had no recollection of his actions for several days after that, the release said.

She captioned the post:"For the past few days, I have been thinking about all the uncomfortable situations myself and/or my team-mates have experienced throughout the years with trainers, doctors, coaches, executives and even team-mates". Don't do it.' It has been in the showers, it's been in the locker room.

"I had some bad experiences with players who are still on the team". Blatter is already serving a ban from Federation Internationale de Football Association after he was ousted for a variety of crimes that rocked global soccer in recent years, but the serious accusation from Solo is an entirely new wrong for Blatter. "It can happen all across the board, it can happen between women, it can happen anywhere", she said. In 2004, he flared tempers when he suggested women female soccer players should wear "more feminine clothes", including "tighter shorts".
