Spanish Football Chiefs Considering Vilda Future

The Spanish football federation (RFEF) are considering dismissing Jorge Vilda just nine days after his Spain side won the Women's World Cup.

Acting RFEF president Pedro Rocha is expected to make a decision on Vilda's future by Wednesday.

Vilda applauded Luis Rubiales' controversial speech at the RFEF extraordinary assembly on Friday.

During his speech, Rubiales addressed Vilda directly, calling him the best coach in women's football and offering him a new €500,000-a-year four-year contract.

Vilda released a statement on Saturday criticising Rubiales but he stopped short of calling for his resignation or dismissal.

The Spain squad said on Friday they would not play for their country again until the leadership at the federation had been removed.

All of Vilda's eleven-strong backroom team resigned on Saturday, leaving the head coach without any players or coaches.

The world champions have Nations League games against Sweden and Switzerland next month.
