In her career, Rapinoe has won many prestigious awards like the gold with the national team in 2012 at the London Summer Olympics, FIFA Women’s World Cup twice in 2015 and 2019.
Molina’s allegation is not just limited to Rapinoe but also he alleged, “400 plus current players Premier League, Championship, Ligue 1, and Ligue 2 have been raped multiple times in their youth, a Ligue 1 team covered up a pedophilia scandal in their youth academy and some international games in Asia are fixed.”

Just to make things clear, these sensational claims were made during the discussion on Twitter Spaces and it is not published officially.
Molina tweeted, “Totally agree with you, it’s outrageous, like a guy punching and kicking a girl after showing her his c**k.”
None of the international sport’s official governing bodies like FIFA and UEFA have responded to his allegations.
Molina further added that three years back this incident took place in 2018 just 12 months before Mendy had joined Real Madrid. He further said that Lyon is aware of the series of events and Mendy was facing a serious alcohol problem who has had no communication with his mother for the past 4 years.
Molina added, “The girl that Ferland Mendy violently assaulted in 2018 ended up in an emergency room at a hospital in Rouen. Ferland Mendy did what he did to that girl at the Mercure Champs-Elysees Hotel, in Paris.”
And we’re keep going (Kenyan basketball, Mongolian football…) and more cases are coming.
If people are aware or survivors of these kind of abuses in international sports fédération, they can reach me.
My pleasure to help/assist.
Keep the faith (and the fight) !
