The president of the Higher Sports Council (CSD), José Manuel Franco, was optimistic about the conflict that has arisen between several players who have wanted not to be called up by the women’s soccer team due to the current climate in the locker room and believes that both they and the RFEF are “condemned to understand each other” because they have not seen “extreme positions”.

“This is a problem that the RFEF and the players have to solve and they are going to solve it because I have not seen extreme positions,” said José Manuel Franco this Monday during his presence at the Gala of the Spanish Sports Press Association (AEPD) held in Dos Hermanas (Seville).

In this sense, the leader recalled that the 15 players, 16 if Alexia Putellas, currently injured, is counted, “have not said that they are definitively resigning”, a position that makes him “deeply” happy, and that the federative entity “is not going to impose sanctions”. “So they are condemned to understand each other for the good of women’s football, which has brutal force like Spanish sport,” he said.
