A total of fifteen players international have communicated this Thursday to the Royal Spanish Football Federation their resignation to the national team for her refusal to dismiss from office to the current coach, Jorge Vilda.

The RFEF itself reports in a statement that “throughout today it has received 15 emails from 15 players of the women’s absolute soccer team, coincidentally all with the same wording, in which they state that the current situation generated it affects them ‘significantly’ in their ’emotional state’ and in their ‘health’ and that, ‘as long as it is not reversed’, they renounce 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, because making those decisions does not fall within its powers“, he adds.

The Federation emphasizes that “it will not accept any type of pressure from any player when adopting sports measures” and that “this type of maneuver is far from exemplary and outside the values โ€‹โ€‹of football and sport and are harmful”https://www.elconfidencial.com/deportes/2022-09-22/quince-internacionales-renuncian-seleccion-vilda_3495244/.”In accordance with Spanish law in force, not attending a selection call is qualified as a very serious offense and can carry sanctions of between two and five years of disqualification”, recalls the agency.

“The RFEF, contrary to the way these players act, wants to make it clear that it will not take them to this extreme or put pressure on them. Directly, it will not summon the soccer players who do not want to wear the Spain shirt. The Federation will only have committed soccer players even if I have to play with youth players,” he stresses.

The federation believes that “this event has happened to be from a sporting issue to a matter of dignity. The selection is non-negotiable. It is an unprecedented situation in the history of football, both male and female, in the Spanish and world level”. “The present and future of Spain lies in the potential of the lower categories and of players who this summer have been proclaimed champions of the world under-20 and champions of Europe under-19, in addition to obtaining the subchampionship of Europe sub-17 juvenile“, remember.

The RFEF understands that “the selection needs players committed to the project, defending our colors and proud to wear the Spain shirt. The players who have submitted their resignation only they will return to the discipline in the future of the national team if they accept their mistake and ask for forgiveness”.
