"I've seen it not just with coaches".

"I'm actually very disappointed with the women who haven't spoken about it in the sports world", Solo said. That's the way I've always handled things.

Blatter was head of the world football's governing body for 17 years, until a corruption scandal in 2015.

Solo, who is the most capped goalkeeper in USA football history, recently shared her views regarding sexual harassment in sport with her 868,000 Instagram followers. It can happen all across the board, it can happen between women, it can happen anywhere. She said she's seen inappropriate behavior from coaches, doctors, press officers - and between players. The 36-year-old was suspended for six months by U.S. Soccer for calling Swedish players a "bunch of cowards" and has not returned to the team since. He suggested in 2004 that female players could wear "tighter shorts" like "they do in volleyball." and in 2013, he called a female candidate for FIFA's executive committee "good, and good looking".
