Former U.S. Soccer star Hope Solo is trashing team coach Jill Ellis just ahead of the Women’s World Cup. “She’s not the leader I wish her to be,” Solo told the BBC, according to Reuters. “She relies heavily on her assistant coaches. She cracks under the pressure quite a bit. But oftentimes it doesn’t matter, because the quality of the players on the U.S. team is superb.” Solo, who was the goalkeeper for the World Cup-winning 2015 team, had her contract terminated after calling the Swedish team “cowards” during the 2016 Olympics. There was no immediate response from Ellis.
