Heather O'Reilly says there is a lack of checks and balances in women’s football

Former NWSL player Heather O’Reilly has expressed that Women’s football keeps on hiding many problematic allegations and issues. Her comments come in the wake of the controversies created by the sexual misconduct allegations on Paul Riley and the lackadaisical approach of the League’s bigwigs in this regard.

I think women's football has swept a lot of bad things under the rug because we want the league to succeed. We want to continue our personal careers and there's not as many opportunities for players to be professional footballers so I think that's a reason why a lot of things are just dealt with. As a player, you just take it. In the NWSL there's not a ton of HR employees at clubs, there's not a hotline for players to call, so that's why so many things happen time after time and aren't disciplined.
