Jorge Vilda: “I think I have been unjustly dismissed”


Jorge Vilda, dismissed this Tuesday as the women’s national soccer coach, believes that this decision has been made “unfairly” and that it was not “deserved”, and that he has only been informed by the RFEF that it was due to “structural changes”.

“I’m as good as it can be after being world champions 16 days ago, ten days ago being renewed for four more years with a higher salary, and after today being fired I think unfairly,” Vilda said in an interview. in ‘El Larguero’ of the SER chain.

The coach explained that they informed him of his dismissal after a “brief meeting” with Pedro Rocha, acting president of the RFEF, the general secretary and the vice president of Equality and that it was due to “structural changes.”

“After 17 years in women’s football, after everything I’ve achieved, leaving my skin as one more worker of the federation, and with a clear conscience because I have given one hundred percent, I have said that it is something that I cannot understood and that he did not see the dismissal as deserved,” he added.

In addition, Vilda stressed that she has “congratulated” Montse Tomé for taking the reins of the national team. “It is deserved and she has the ability to do it very well. She was chosen by me for the coaching staff, she has challenges ahead. The greatest legacy that I have been able to leave is a recognizable style of play and a methodology, she has it to take advantage of it. She is ready and he’s going to do well,” he said.
