Alex Morgan is not happy with FIFA.
The famous United States women's national team star is pushing the idea of
FIFA handing over a sponsorship to Saudi Arabia.
"I find it bizarre that FIFA has sought Saudi sponsorship for the Women's World Cup when I myself,
Alex Morgan, will not even be supported and accepted in that country."
"I think what Saudi Arabia could do is put effort into their women's team which was just formed a couple of years ago –
and doesn't even have a current ranking within the FIFA ranking system,
because of some of the games they've played. "
Morgan's comments on FIFA went viral on social media on Wednesday.
One fan wrote, "Always think there is something pure about women's football,
they do it for the love of the game more than anyone."
She also made some notable comments on transgender athletes.
Morgan isn't shying away from controversial topics on Wednesday, that's for sure.
