Divisive women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe suffered a game-ending injury just over five minutes into the final match of her career on Saturday.
However, rather than bow out into retirement with dignity, Rapinoe lashed out by claiming her suspected torn Achilles is “proof” that God doesn’t exist.
Rapinoe went down in the sixth minute as her team OL Reign lost to Gotham FC in the National Women’s Soccer League Championship on Saturday night.
The match was the final game of Raninoe’s soccer career after the “woke” player recently announced her retirement from the sport.
In the post-match press conference, Rapinoe said she was going to get the “Aaron Rodgers treatment” to try and recover from the injury.
As Slay News reported, Rogers recently suffered a season-ending injury when he also tore his Achilles tendon.
Rapinoe said she’d reach out to Rogers or whoever did his surgery.
However, Rapinoe then used her moment in the spotlight to attack the religious beliefs of people everywhere.
“I’m not a religious person or anything and if there was a God, like, this is proof that there isn’t,” Rapinoe said.
“This is f**ked up,” she complained.
“It’s just f**ked up.
“Six minutes in and I eat my Achilles.”
Rapinoe tried to make a play on defense when she went down with a non-contact injury.
An emotional Rapinoe was tended to by medical staff before leaving the game, ending her night and career.
Before leaving the field, Rapinoe hugged former USWNT teammate Ali Krieger, who plays for Gotham FC.
Krieger was also playing in her final professional game.
“Everyone is always like, ‘Who kicked me?’” Rapinoe said when describing the injury via The Seattle Times.
“And obviously, no one was even around me, and I was pressing.
“That’s what it felt like.
“Just a huge pop and I can’t even feel where the Achilles is, but pretty sure I tore my Achilles.
“The worst possible outcome.”
“Thank God I have a f**king deep well of a sense of humor,” she ironically stated.
“It’s devastating to go out in a final so early.”
Rapinoe finished her career with the Reign scoring four goals and recording five assists in 15 matches in 2023.
The Reign was the only squad she played on in the NWSL.
