Jorge Vilda, dismissed as women’s coach


The coach Jorge Vilda has been dismissed this Tuesday as the women’s national soccer team, shortly after proclaiming himself world champion in the tournament in Australia and New Zealand, and the Extraordinary General Assembly of the RFEF in which he applauded the speech of President Luis Rubiales, suspended by FIFA.

The dismissal of the women’s national team, already “worn out” by the conflict of “The 15” international “rebels”, comes after the national team embroidered its first star by beating England (1-0) in the Cup final of the Women’s World on August 20.

This historic milestone was punctuated by Luis Rubiales’s kiss to the international Jenni Hermoso in the celebration of the trophy, as well as by the intervention of the suspended president in the Extraordinary Assembly of the RFEF, in which he refused to resign, to applause from most of those present, including Vilda.

In addition, the coaching staff of the former women’s coach made their positions “available” to the federation, and the world champions announced that they would resign from the team if changes were not made to the structure of Spanish women’s football.
