The president of the Higher Sports Council (CSD), José Manuel Franco, demanded this Monday to stop stopping “permanent disputes” related to women’s sport and “high vision” for all the agents involved when it comes to developing, promoting and make him visible because his “talent is immense and he only claims what he deserves”.
“We cannot get paralyzed in permanent disputes, sometimes self-serving and other times artificial, women have been waiting for solutions for a long time,” Franco said during his speech at the MARCA Women’s Sports Awards ceremony held in Barcelona.
The leader stressed that all parties are “obliged to bet on women’s sports.” “I ask all institutions to have a high vision, without exception, female talent is immense and only demands what it deserves, new and better opportunities, but it needs everyone’s support,” he commented.
“My wish for the year 2023 is that a sense of responsibility is imposed among those of us who can and must contribute to making equal opportunities in sport effective and real, the distance we still have to cover, if we all do it together, will be easier,” Franco said.
He also recalled that for his organization “it is mandatory to accompany women in their sporting development, promote their visibility and strengthen their professionalism.” “It is not an easy path, but we will achieve great successes,” he insisted.
In addition, she thanked the sports newspaper for these awards that allow “to raise the echo of admiration and recognition towards women athletes whose successes can be exemplified in the trajectory of those that are consolidated and in others that come with a lot of drive”.
“And what we have left, because Spanish women’s sport has a great future. The success of women in sport is manifested in all disciplines and at any age, abroad the success of clubs and federations is praised and taken as a guide You are successful athletes and together with referees, coaches or managers you are much more, you are visible references for the entire Spanish society”, stressed the president of the CSD.
