What They're Saying: Carli Lloyd

“I don’t think I will ever be happy with how I was treated between 2016 and 2019. I was in the best form of my career but was told I would not be a starter no matter how well or how hard I worked at training or how many goals I score. Listening to people label me as too old and that I was better as a super sub was difficult since I knew this was not the case.”

-- Carli Lloyd, who led the USA with 16 goals in 2019 despite playing mostly in a reserve role. At 38, she says she's not thinking past the 2020 Olympics and enjoying a boost in confidence from the appointment of Vlatko Andonovski as U.S. women's head coach. (Los Angeles Times)

    We need younger players on the WNT, your taking up space on the team that is needed by younger players. Selfishnes does not help the team, time to retire, give someone else a chance.
