Team USA soccer star Rose Lavelle says she’s stoked about that $23k bonus check from Secret deodorant, but explains there’s A LOT more work to be done!
As we previously reported, Secret cut a $529k check to the USWNT Player’s Association to help close the pay gap between the men’s team. Each player will essentially walk away with $23k.
So, when we saw Rose — the 24-year-old phenom who scored that amazing 2nd goal in the World Cup final — we asked how she felt about companies like Secret trying to help out.
“I think it’s great,” Lavelle told us while walking around Washington D.C.
“I think it’s a step in the right direction, but I think there’s always work to be done.”
We also asked Rose if there was ANY chance the team would be willing to end the feud with President Donald Trump … but Lavelle seemed genuinely stumped.
“I don’t know,” Lavelle said while chuckling at the question …. “I have no clue!”
While Rose acknowledged it would “be cool” for the team and POTUS to find a away to get along, she didn’t seem too optimistic about it.
Remember, USWNT captain Megan Rapinoe said there was no way the team would go to the “f*cking White House” to celebrate the World Cup victory with Trump because she claims he’s a divisive person who’s bad for the country.
