A top female footballer has claimed a married Premier League player tried to rape her after she passed out drunk in his hotel room.
Alexandra Nord, who used to be a striker for QPR Ladies, told how she woke up to find the international player naked and lying on top of her having removed her tights and underwear.
Swedish Alexandra, 25, said: “I understood that it was he who had taken off my clothes. I do not know exactly how far he had gone.
“The first thing I thought was to get him away.
“My first reaction was anger, then I was ashamed and thought maybe I had agreed to something?”
Alexandra has posted an account of the sex attack on her blog.
She joined the #metoo campaign online campaign which began in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein Hollywood scandal so victims of sexual attacks or harassment can tell their stories.
Alexandra, who has not named the footballer, said that while she could not remember everything that she had said and done that night she knew she had not consented to sex.
he added: “ I did not give him ANY right to touch my body without my permission.
Alexandra said the footballer continued to grope her even after she made her distress clear.
She said: “I’m angry, sad and ashamed. I gather my stuff together while the guy pulls me back and I do not understand why.
“He does not understand that I do not want to be with him. I say ‘No.’ He can see at that I am upset.
“I feel obliged to stay because he’s going to drive me because I do not have my jacket (it is about 5 degrees outside) or wallet with me.
“Finally, it does not matter anymore. He has no respect for me or my body and continues to grope me until I storm out of the room and down to the lobby.
“It’s maybe 6am. I do not know how to get home. I have no jacket and do not know how to get a taxi.
“The hotel manager looks at me and knows who I was there with. He quickly arranges a taxi for me and says ‘It’s on us’.”
Alexandra was 19 at the time of the alleged attack and had met the footballer in a Mayfair nightclub popular with footballers and celebrities.
He asked her to go for some food with him to sober up but took her to a hotel in South Kensington.
“I’m very careful to say ‘I have to get back here before 3am because my jacket is in the club.’
“He persuaded me to go to a hotel. I say I need my own room.
“The fact that he checked the room in my name, paid in cash and then asked his manager to call me is enough evidence to prove he knew what he was doing.
“On top of that, I also found out that he had a wife.”
Alexandra said the footballer’s manager even called her the next day and warned her to keep quiet about the attack at the hotel.
She has since left QPR and appeared on a reality show, The Bachelor, back home in Sweden.
She did not report the 2012 attack to police because she did not feel she had enough evidence or understanding of a foreign legal system.
