The situation of women’s football is not the same in all countries of the world. And in Argentina there is a clash over the development of the discipline. At the Estudiantes members meeting, the president of the club spoke about it: Juan Sebastian Veron
The situation of women’s football is not the same in all countries of the world. There are areas where the pink ball is a consolidated reality, in some cases at the same level as the men’s one. Others (and this is the case in Italy) where the movement is growing and is always looking for new ways to become independent. And then there are cases like that of Argentina, in which the discussion reaches a breaking point between who represents male and female football. As he tells ASthe Estudiantes general assembly has turned into a debate on the matter.
A member asked why no more money was invested in the women’s team and the president’s response arrived. That’s not any one but Juan Sebastian Veron. And Brujita’s statements made a lot of noise. “We take away the romance and all that is said about amateurism. Football is a company. And as a company it must generate income, it is already difficult for men’s football despite the income it has. So women’s football must have the same source of income. business to be able to invest in it, otherwise everything becomes very difficult. The club takes on the costs of women’s football, as often happens with minor sports. Sometimes a lot is asked of the club, but in order for women’s football to eventually grow it needs to produce income”.
And Veron continued on this trend. “Because otherwise we always go to the discourse of romanticism, which must grow, which must be professional. But the reality is that it is not professional, it is not at all. To be professional it must be a company, with investments that can have the same quality of the male one and this is not the case, because there is no serious will in the federation, which promotes women’s football but then passes the costs on to the clubs “. A position, that of the former Sampdoria, Lazio and Inter, which angered the Argentine footballer Aldi Cometti, in force at the Madrid CFF, who wrote on Twitter: “Mr. Veron, to ensure that money arrives you have to work and invest. Otherwise nothing will ever come “. And the controversy … it served.
