Abby Wambach wants nothing to do with Brett Favre after his alleged actions in Mississippi.
The American soccer legend was a member of the sports advisory board for Odyssey Health – whose top investor is Favre. The USWNT legend says she is cutting ties with a venture that is linked to Pro Football Hall of Famer Brett Favre, in which he is accused of misusing welfare funds in Mississippi.
According to a civil lawsuit, $2.1 million that was supposed to be distributed to welfare recipients went to Odyssey Health. That information left Wambach seriously disturbed.
“Minutes after learning this new information, I initiated the process to immediately and fully divest myself from any involvement — financial and otherwise — with Prevacus/Odyssey Health Inc., a process that I insisted be complete by end of day today,” Wambach said.
Wambach said she was “angry” and “saddened” by what she learned about Odyssey Health.
“Since I genuinely believed this company was being transparent about a product that could spare the next generation of athletes from the severe impact of concussion injuries that I endured as a professional athlete, I am profoundly angry, disappointed, and saddened by what I learned today,” she added.
Wambach is one of the most accomplished players in United States soccer history. She won a World Cup winner and is a two-time gold medalist and a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame.
