Paula Dapena rejected to pay tribute to late Argentine legend Maradona

Paula Dapena wanted to stage a demonstration during the minute of silence kept for the Argentine great on a weekend that saw tributes to the late Diego Maradona.

Dapena plays for Spanish side Viajes Interrias FF and due to her clear opinions on the 1986 World Cup winner, she sat on the field and faced the other 21 players in the opposite direction.

“My teammates looked at me and laughed because they knew I would not do it,” she told Pontevedra Viva.

“A few days ago, on the Day for the Elimination of Gender Violence, these gestures were not made and if a minute of silence was not observed for the victims, I am not willing to do it for an abuser.”

“I said that I refused to observe the minute of silence for a rapist, pedophile, and abuser and that I had to sit on the floor and turn my back.”

“To be a player you have to first be a person and have values beyond skills like those he had, which we know were spectacular football qualities and talents,” she stated.

Dapena’s side went on to lose 10-0 Deportiva de Abegondo.
