Spanish players ask for the resignation of coach Jorge Vilda
The federation supports the coach, who has a contract until 2024
The concentration of the Spanish women’s team in Las Rozas for the qualifying duels of the World Cup 2023 in view of Hungary and Ukraine has been disrupted by a schism in the squad. According to various sources, some players have requested the resignation of coach Jorge Vildaensuring that it is necessary to change several things for the World Cup.
Even so, according to Cadena Cope, not all have transferred this anger to the coach and it is most likely that it will not be taken no decision in the offices. The federation supports the coach, who has a contract until 2024 and is willing to continue in office.
Support of Rubiales
Some of the players of the women’s national football team, starting with the captains, met with the current coach and the staff to ask him to leave. Those who were not summoned entered by phone or video call to this meeting, which lasted for three hours. That meeting would have been so tense that some soccer player would have collapsed in tears.
Faced with this situation, Jorge Vilda has informed his players that he has the full support of Luis Rubiales. In the federation, according to Marca, they do not believe that there is anything that can cause a drastic change. “Jorge can even come out of this situation reinforced. He is armored. It is not the players who choose the coach but the president of the RFEF.”
According to this newspaper, bad results of the national team, which do not correspond to the successes at the club level, the clear separation between starters and substitutes and the low quality of the training would be the reasons that have led the hard core of the team to make this drastic decision.
