The coach of the absolute women's soccer team, Jorge Vildal, regretted this Saturday what he defined as "improper behavior" of the until today president of the Spanish Federation, Luis Rubiales, after the achievement of the World Cup and the fact that he has tarnished the greatest success of the team in its history by winning the title against England.
"I am deeply sorry that the victory of Spanish women's football has been harmed by the inappropriate behavior that our top manager, Luis Rubiales, has carried out up to now and that he himself has recognized," the coach said in a statement sent to EFE.
In his opinion, the "events" that have occurred since the World Cup final until today "have been a real nonsense and have generated an unprecedented situation, tarnishing a well-deserved victory for our players and our country."
"There is no doubt that it is unacceptable and does not reflect at all the principles and values that I defend in my life, in sport in general and in football in particular. I condemn without palliatives any macho attitude that is far from an advanced and developed society", continue writing.
In Vilda's opinion, in recent days "an undesirable climate has been generated, far removed from what should have been a great celebration of Spanish sport and women's sport."
He also points out that these reflections have already been transferred to Rubiales, who from today is replaced on an interim basis by the until now vice president of the RFEF Pedro Rocha.
"My work as women's national coach and sports director of the women's teams has always been oriented towards achieving sporting success, but also promoting initiatives that encourage inclusion, respect and equity. The achievement of the World Cup and the successes achieved in lower categories They are a reflection of the work that has been carried out by the Federation, which indisputably supports women's sport", added the coach.
Vilda reiterates her "unwavering commitment" to promoting a sport "that is a model of equality and respect in our society."
