Real Madrid Femenino goalkeeper Misa Rodriguez wanted to thank the support she received after being the victim of misogynistic abuse last Tuesday, following a tweet comparing one of her celebrations to Asensio’s. Misa decided to delete her tweet after receiving abuse from users.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she tweeted, with the same picture she published on Tuesday.

Misa received support not only from Real Madrid players but also from many other colleagues and clubs around the world like FC Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur and also Marco Asesio, Marcelo, Lucas Vazquez and others, all of which used #MismaPasion —#SamePassion— as the hashtag, which is the message she posted on Tuesday.

The Managing Madrid team expresses our full support for Misa Rodríguez and the entire Real Madrid Femenino squad and denounces the sexism she faces and the misogyny that plagues this sport. We are incredibly proud of what Misa and her teammates have been able to accomplish so far this season, sitting in a Champions League qualification spot in only their first official season with the Madrid crest. They are a credit to this club and our hunger for maximum success.

Misa, your passion is the same as any man’s and, thus, it deserves the same respect. #Mismapasión.
