An Open Letter from Portland Timbers Owner Merritt Paulson

The safety and wellbeing of our players – physically, emotionally and psychologically – always has been and will continue to be our top priority. Given my personal commitment to women’s soccer and to building one of the best teams in the world, I speak for our entire organization in saying that we are reeling and devastated by the abuse that Mana Shim and Sinead Farrelly endured while playing for the Portland Thorns under former coach Paul Riley.
