The world of football wanted to respond with rejection of the sexist harassment received by Misa, Real Madrid goalkeeper, in a post on Twitter after Madrid’s triumph in the Champions League against Liverpool (3-1). Not only Marco Asensio, the protagonist in a photo of the Canarian goal’s tweet, has come out in defense of his partner, so has a large number of footballers and clubs, who have wanted to show your support for Misa by imitating her publication under the motto she used: ‘Same passion’. Two words that have become an ode against machismo in football through social networks.
Marcelo, Lucas Vázquez, Vinicius, Casemiro, Carvajal, Esteban Granero, Betis player Bea Parra, Mai Garde, among others, and clubs like Barça, Levante, Valencia Basketball, Cádiz, Leganés and even other internationals such as Tottenham o el Eintracht Frankfurt They wanted to support the goalkeeper with photos of their men’s and women’s teams. All of them under the slogan ‘Same passion’, which a large number of media and journalists have also used to make visible the ‘no’ to machismo in football.
All these and many more examples, from inside and outside of football, have defended Misa, who is concentrated with the Spanish National Team. Some gestures that FIFA wanted to applaud with various emoticons in response to Marco Asensio’s message (“Same passion. Let nothing and no one prevent you from saying what you think”). The Real Madrid player paved the way for everyone to turn to the footballer.
The Canarian goalkeeper signed for Real Madrid last summer and has become one of the key players in the white box, looking at Europe. Former Atlético and Madridista from the cradle, Misa is fulfilling the great dream of wearing the Madridista elastic in each match. A fact that will not be able to cloud all those who harassed and wrote hurtful messages towards the footballer, who was forced to delete a post which had no message beyond that: pure football and, as the Mass itself called it, the “same passion” for Real Madrid.
