What seemed to be the star signing of the women’s team of the real Madrid had to be put on pause momentarily due to a gender issue.
It turns out that tests carried out on the Zambian attacker, Barbra Banda, had high levels of testosteronemuch more than the usual levels of a woman.
The information was published this Tuesday by OKDiario, which also revealed that Banda’s signing has been stopped.
the african player managed to pass the medical examination that Real Madrid did to him on June 23, in the midst of preparations for his joining the club next season.
However, there were inconsistencies in the tests performed, including his high levels of testosterone.
But in his case there is already a precedent, because just this week the African Football Confederation prevented Banda from participating in the African Cup, because they doubt that she is a woman.
Real Madrid kept track of the player due to her status as a goalscorer. She participated in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with the Zambian national team, and was the second top scorer in the tournament with six goals.
