After the Spaniard was kissed without her permission by the president of the Spanish FA after the Women’s World Cup final, Jenni Hermoso has returned to Mexico to resume playing with her club team, which has promised to help her recover “normality.” 

Hermoso, a Pachuca player in the Mexican league, traveled from Madrid at daybreak to Mexico City before continuing to Pachuca, 90 kilometers to the southwest, to rejoin her club team.

Since the final, she has avoided direct media interviews and will continue to do so in Mexico, at least for now.

As she will be entirely focused on picking up her activities and getting back to normal in her day-to-day life, the athlete will not speak to the media for the time being, the team stated. We value your consideration and observance of her privacy.

Hermoso’s Participation in Pachuca on Sunday is Unknown

On Sunday, Pachuca will compete in round 10 of the Apertura tournament versus Pumas. It’s unclear if Hermoso will be included.

The Pachuca soccer club has provided Jenni Hermoso with the institutional, emotional, and personal support she needs to continue with the Tuzas.

Along with Pachuca, other teams in the league also posted on social media to welcome the world champion to Mexico.

After nine rounds, the Tuzas are ranked 10th out of 18 teams in the premier division. Hermoso joined Pachuca last summer after a long European career, including stops at Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

She contributed to the team’s advancement to the final when they were defeated by Club America earlier this year, scoring 18 goals in 20 games.

Hermoso Initiates a Lawsuit on Rubiales’ Kiss

Hermoso has filed a complaint with the prosecutor’s office on Rubiales’ kiss, who is currently suspended as the head of the Spanish FA.

The prosecutor noted that the allegation will be handled “as soon as possible” after the 33-year-old’s Tuesday hearing.

In addition to the ongoing investigation by Spain’s top sports court for “serious misconduct” and an investigation by FIFA, which has temporarily suspended Rubiales, the complaint could result in criminal proceedings against him.

At the awards ceremony following Spain’s 1-0 victory over England in Sydney on August 20, Rubiales kissed Hermoso.

Hermoso claimed she felt “vulnerable and a victim of aggression” and did not want to be kissed. Hermoso also claimed that the federation pressured her and her family to back Rubiales immediately following the event.

Rubiales described the kiss as “spontaneous, mutual, euphoric, and consensual” despite strong pressure to step down.

The government of Spain, players’ organizations, players, and many Spanish citizens have publicly backed Hermoso, but Rubiales has steadfastly refused to step down.

On August 27, FIFA suspended Rubiales for his belligerent statement at his federation’s general congress, in which he claimed he was the target of a “witch hunt” by “false feminists.”
