Jenni Hermoso has come out to issue a statement to Spanish prosecutors over the kiss-gate scandal with former Spanish FA President, Luis Rubiales. This is coming after her testimony was broadcast on TV, and fans have been reacting.
According to her, the incident was something that she did not enjoy at all, and she will keep insisting that she never gave her consent because that is the truth.
Jenni added that it is a shame to see how the incident tarnished her image while the federation failed to protect her.
His words, “At no time was the kiss consensual. They tarnished my image; I felt, as a player and worker of the Federation, that no one was protecting me. They were asking me to protect them, to help them, but at no time did I feel that no one was protecting me.”
“I was a little more nervous. At no time would I have allowed myself to start crying in a corner so that “Everyone told me ‘what’s going on’. It was time to celebrate. I also had to protect my teammates.”
“I don’t deserve to have experienced all this. It has been very difficult for me not to be able to leave the house. I have had to leave Madrid to not have that pressure I had from people who only wanted to hurt me . Why do I have to be repressed? or crying in a room when I haven’t done anything?”
“We were at the final ceremony. They gave me the medal, I greeted the Queen, I hugged her daughter and the next one was Rubiales. He jumped on me, I stood firm to support him, he told me ‘we have won this World Cup thanks to you’, and the next thing was his hands on my head. I didn’t see anything else and I saw myself with the kiss on the mouth.”
“When I go up, the only thing I hear is that. I didn’t hear anything else and he kissed me. I didn’t even expect it. How could I expect that stage after being world champions? There was a lot of joy, but I didn’t look for that moment nor did I do anything to make that event happen. I saw myself with that moment and when I went down to the stage I mentioned it to my colleagues.”
