Spanish FA reveals 15 players have threatened to quit women’s team if Jorge Vilda is not fired

The Spanish FA statement read: ‘The RFEF can confirm that, throughout today, we received 15 emails from 15 players of the women’s senior soccer team… in which they state that the current situation affects ‘significantly’ their emotional state and their health and that, ‘as long as it is not reversed’, they resign from the Spanish national team.

‘The RFEF is not going to allow the players to question the continuity of the national coach and his coaching staff, since making those decisions does not fall within their powers.’

The RFEF said that refusing to honour a call-up for a national team was classified as a ‘very serious infraction and can carry sanctions of two and five years of disqualification’.

According to sources close to the situation, the players are unhappy with the management of injuries, the atmosphere in the locker room, Vilda’s team selection and his training sessions.

The RFEF, which did not disclose the identities of the 15 players, said it fully supported the coach and that the players will only return to the team if they ‘recognise their mistake and ask for forgiveness’.

Spain were knocked out of the Euros under Vilda’s stewardship at the quarter-final stage after a defeat to England in extra time.
