[Ed. – That’s retirement only from soccer. She plans to devote her full time to taking a knee.]
America’s leading Olympic anthem protester and social justice advocate may soon decide to retire, or she may not, but she’s definitely thinking about it.
Megan Rapinoe, who was among the first to follow Colin Kaepernick’s lead and begin kneeling at sporting events, confessed that she was “thinking about” her own retirement following an announcement on Monday that fellow U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) member Carli Lloyd, had decided to call it quits.
“Just in terms of my whole career, I don’t really know yet. I need to take some time to think about it,” Rapinoe said on ESPN’s Spain and Fitz Show.
“They always say, ‘You’ll know when you know,’ but it’s not really like that, because you could kind of keep going, and it’s like ‘Aw yeah, you’ve accomplished so much, you’ll be fine stepping away.’”
