Unlike what happened at the end of last August, when in this newspaper we advanced the news that the captains of the FC Barcelona they had telephoned Rubiales to ask for the dismissal of the coach, this time it was the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) which hastened to report that throughout today, it has received 15 emails from 15 players of the senior women’s soccer team, coincidentally all with the same wording, in which they state that the current situation generated affects them “importantly” in its “emotional state” and in his “Health” and that, “as long as it doesn’t reverse”renounce the national team of Spain.

As is logical, the news that all the media immediately picked up was that 15 players gave up playing in the National Team while Jorge Vilda continues. Nevertheless, Just pay attention to the placement of the quotes in the RFEF statement to check that they are in “emotional state” or “health”, but not when talking about resigning from the Spanish national team. “They have invented that we have given up”, was the WhatsApp message of one of the 15 involved. The names of the players, among whom there was no player from the real Madrid for the reasons already explained, they filtered from the Las Rozas Football Cityalthough the most curious thing is that the first one that stood out, and to say that it was not among those who sent the emails, was that of Alexia Putellas.

Contrary to the generalized interpretation of the facts, and that even the Secretary of State for Sport dared to qualify as “shameful”, The soccer players did not address the RFEF to communicate their resignation to go to the National Teambut to report that her state of mind was not the best to be among those called on the list that the questioned Jorge Vilda is going to give this week, something that any worker has the right to wield. In the case of the captain of FC Barcelona, ​​recently proclaimed the best player in the world, He thought it convenient not to send her because her injury is long lasting and she could not be called by the coach for this list. As for IRene Paredesapparently the pressure he suffered in the last concentration was still lasting…

Now, contrary to what was wanted to be seen, Alexia Putellas did participate in the idea of ​​sending this statement, which was thoroughly consulted with experts and even her own clubs, precisely so as not to make the mistake of making it seem that they were giving up the National Team. just read the Article 47 of the Sports Law 10/1990which sets the obligation of the athletes to participate in the calls of the national team and that the unjustified absence constitutes a “very serious” infraction, which can be punished. Well with a fine, temporary disqualification or even the loss of the federal license.

Jorge Vilda already guessed it…

“We are not going to single out anyone and we will look for a selection of players who want to be there”assured assemblyman Vilda after the rebellion on board that he suffered before and during the last concentration, in which, as we reported in this newspaper and, indirectly, they were in charge of confirming in the RFEF, the captains of FC Barcelona asked for his dismissal from Rubiales and his response was to ratify him in the position. “No one forces the National Team to come and we want a united National Team”, added the selector as if something was suspected, but also facing the gallery, since it is known that this is not the case. As this Thursday was again demonstrated with the misrepresentation of the federal statement.

Once the main reason for the emails, which were indeed agreed upon by all the soccer players, had been retouched, the RFEF took the opportunity to make it clear that “it will not allow the players to question the continuity of the national coach and of his coaching staff, since making those decisions does not fall within his powers. The Federation will not admit any type of pressure from any player when adopting sports measures. These types of maneuvers are far from exemplary and outside the values ​​of football and sport and are harmful”. After what happened in the famous Salobreña villa, that from the RFEF that Rubiales presides over, talk to the female soccer players of exemplary and values, it seems offensive.

The 15 players at no time say that they give up going to the National Team, but that they are not in a state of mind to be summoned, something that seems the same, but it is not, and thus they will be able to demonstrate it in the supposed case of being filed. The RFEF was also in charge of recalling in its statement something that the soccer players already knew, such as “in accordance with current Spanish legislation, not attending a national team call is classified as a very serious infraction and can carry sanctions of between two and five years of disqualification”.

A Selection only with Madrid and Jenni?

But of course, what better way to try to be above some soccer players who once again try to useto then say that “the RFEF, contrary to the way these players act, wants to make it clear that he 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 players, even if it has to play with youth players.” This last observation is interesting, because after everything that is happening with the F League, who knows if Vilda can only end up counting on the Real Madrid players, in addition to Jenni Hermoso, of course.

The RFEF statement ends by assuring that “the National Team needs players committed to the projectdefending our colors and proud to wear the Spain shirt”, to once again distort the emails by saying that “The soccer players who have submitted their resignation will only return to the discipline of the national team in the future if they accept their mistake and ask for forgiveness”. The question that arises is: what error are they referring to? To not put up with the bad atmosphere that is breathed in the team led by Jorge Vilda, even greater since the fracture caused in the last concentration by the coach himself, so that the Real Madrid soccer players backed down and ended up, if not supporting him, yes at least not going against him?

“I do not have the feeling that any player has wanted to break a locker room. What has appeared in the media does not reflect the feeling that is inside”Vilda even said in the ‘Cadena Cope’ at the end of the last concentration, perhaps in reference to the media in which, in order not to disturb and endanger her presence in the Qatar World Cupthey prefer to look the other way and continue reporting women’s football as if everything that has happened and this Thursday definitely jumped into the air had been imaginations.

“The laws of sport have been transferred, and the first is that what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room,” said Vilda, who, however, would not mind if the RFEF leaked, not only the content of the email of 15 footballers, but also their names. “What you are saying is something that they have flatly denied. If you don’t believe them, ask them”, the questioned coach dared to answer the question of why he was still in office if the soccer players did not want him. Will they continue to say the same thing when the soccer players clarify that they have not resigned from the National Team, but that they cannot stand being with him anymore?
