Hope Solo was in shock when she learned of her suspension from the U.S. Women’s Soccer team. Solo was suspended six months and had her contract terminated.
A clip from the Fullscreen documentary series “Keeping Score” was obtained by PEOPLE. The camera crew from the documentary series was at a Seattle hotel and captured Solo’s reaction after her Aug. 24 meeting with United States Coach Jill Ellis and the federation’s chief executive, Dan Flynn. She was shown fighting back tears as she told her husband the news.
“Six-month suspension, no pay, terminated contract, effective immediately” Solo said. “Terminated contract — not just a suspension. It’s bull. 17 f—ing years and its over.”
Here is the clip:
Solo was suspended for calling Sweden “cowards” for the way they played during their Olympic quarterfinal game against the US.
This is not the first time U.S. Soccer has had issues with her. She was suspended 30 days last year for her involvement in her husband’s DUI arrest and was also previously involved in a domestic violence dispute with her family.
She is planning on appealing the ruling.
