Putellas, Torrejón, Paños and Guijarro have called the President of the Federation to request the departure of the coach
The four Barcelona captains, Alexia Putellas, Marta Torrejón, Sandra Paños and Patri Guijarro, have shown Luis Rubiales, President of the Spanish Federation, that they do not agree with the work of the coach, Jorge Vilda, according to ‘El Confidencial’. The leaders of the culé locker room rioted and last week called the union head to ask for Vilda’s resignation. They admit that the team’s wardrobe is not at its best, which has affected the atmosphere. The coach of La Roja and his players did not have a good European. They were eliminated in the quarter-final against England and the atmosphere heated up.
The coach was questioned for several decisions that caused a stir among the players even before the European start. For example, royalists Amaiur Sarriegui and Nerea Eizaguirre were not called up after being two of the best players in the league helping Real Sociedad to finish second. After that, Putellas’ injury opened the doors of the national team for Amaiur, albeit with fewer minutes than desired. Last Friday, Vilda responded to a few words from Eizaguirre at a press conference in which he criticized the fact that the two royalists had not been called up for the European Championship. That was the latest episode to confirm that the roster is in turmoil.
Vilda has concentrated 23 players for the games against Hungary and Ukraine this Friday and 6 Tuesday, both of whom qualify for the World Cup. They start at 9pm. The team is classified after winning the previous six games. Amaiur is the only realist on the list.
