Europa League Xabi Alonso supports the women's team: "My daughters will remember why these women fought"

Xabi Alonso, coach of Bayer Leverkusen, referred this Wednesday, on the eve of his team's debut in the Europa League against the Swedish Häcken, to the situation of the Spanish team's players and their demands and said that "events are needed like this so that something good will start" and that their "daughters will remember why these women fought.

"They were proclaimed world champions and we should have talked about their success. But the national team's players are fighting for their rights right now and this is the only correct way," Alonso said in the pre-match press conference.

Xabi Alonso believes that "it is not just about Spain" and that "it is an international issue, as was the 'Me Too' movement in the United States a few years ago." "It's not just about changes in football, but in our entire society," he said.

The former international believes that "sometimes, unfortunately, events like this are needed for something good to start." "My daughters will remember what these women fought for. They fight for what is right and, above all, for a better future," he added.
