  • What They're Saying: Paula Dapena

    "It seems hypocritical to observe a minute's silence for Maradona, who was known for being an abuser, and not [observe] it for the victims of violence against women. It [Maradona's death] totally overshadowed that day. We went from putting the spotlight on the death of women due to this cause to talking only about Maradona and what an idol he was for everyone. For me, from a football standpoint, Maradona had spectacular skills and qualities. But as a person, he left a lot to be desired."

    -- Paula Dapena, who plays for Spanish third division women's club Viajes InterRias FF, after she has received death threats for being the only player who did not line up around the center circle prior to Saturday's friendly game against Deportivo La Coruna and observe a minute's silence in memory of the late Argentina legend Diego Maradona, who died on International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. In 2014, there were allegations of domestic abuse by Maradona toward a former girlfriend after a video appeared to show him striking her. (ESPN)
