Slovenia's women's football team write open letter over 'unprofessional environment'

Dominika Conc is tired.

Tired of how female footballers are treated, tired of the conditions she's forced to play in, and tired of fighting for even the smallest improvements.

But she will not stop.

Conc is the vice-captain of Slovenia's women's national team. In July, she and 30 of her team-mates wrote an open letter to the president of the Slovenian football federation (NZS) demanding the removal of head coach Borut Jarc and detailing allegations of bullying, sexism, body-shaming and inappropriate behaviour within the camp.

Training, she says, had become intolerable, also stating that the environment they found themselves in affected players' mental health.
