MADRID, 18 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has conveyed to the internationals of the women’s team the “public commitment” acquired by the new officials of the organization, and has urged them to “join the change” to begin to “show off” the star as world champions.
In a statement, the RFEF wanted to express “with clarity”, and without internal or external interpretations, the strategic axes of the new stage of the RFEF “that both football and society demand”, just a few hours before the new coach, Montse Tomé, make public this Monday (4:30 p.m.) her first list of those called up. 21 of the 23 world champions who asked for more changes in the federation could not be there.
The RFEF said it was “aware of the need to make structural changes”, as the president of the Management Commission, Pedro Rocha, has already announced and has begun to carry out in recent weeks. “This conviction has led to difficult decisions being made in recent days that will continue to be adopted given the conviction that a renewal is necessary,” he added.
In this sense, to undertake these changes the federation considers it “absolutely essential” to clarify each of the behaviors and conduct that may have occurred and to act “with professionalism and justice, settling the relevant responsibilities in each case.”
In his opinion, the federation, society and the players themselves “are aligned” in the objective of renewal and the beginning of a new stage, “where football is the great beneficiary of this entire process.”
“For this reason, the players are urged to join this change led by the Federation, understanding that the transformations that must continue must be solid and fair,” he indicated.
The RFEF assured that it will guarantee a “safe environment” for the players and is committed to a “climate of mutual trust” to work together and ensure that women’s football “continues to progress much more strongly.” “We must begin to show off the star that the internationals have achieved with so much effort,” she concluded.
