Women squad angry at the CBF
The favorites for the coming World Cup have not received their prize money for their qualification. It is not the first time the Confederação Brasileira de Futebol (CBF) delays the payment, making the players anxious.
Indeed if the financial compensations for the women are much lower than the one for the men, for most of the players it represents a three months salary.
Even though Brazil’s women Selecao is one of the best in the world, its feminine league his badly organized and poorly invested in. This makes the National Team the main source of income for most women players, hence their frustration at the Brazilian Federation delaying the payments.
Contacted by the Brazilian media, the CBF did not give an answer as why the players have not been paid and as when they will be.
