I Have Been Unfairly Sacked By Spain — Vilda

I Have Been Unfairly Sacked By Spain — Vilda

Former Spain head coach Jorge Vilda has described as "unfair" being sacked weeks after winning the Women's World Cup.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) dismissed Vilda on Tuesday, amid the controversy surrounding its suspended president Luis Rubiales.

Montse Tome was named his successor by stand-in RFEF president Pedro Rocha, making her the first woman to hold the position.

"In sporting terms, I am going to accept all the criticisms, but on a personal level I think it has been unfair," Vilda, told Cadena SER.

"It has been a special year. Nothing has ever been said directly but indirectly things have been said that do not suit me. Things have been said that are not true."

The 42-year-old added that his dismissal took him by surprise considering that he led Spain to a maiden World Cup triumph and took them to second in the FIFA women's world rankings.

"I am as well as can be after being fired after being world champion 10 days ago. I have been fired, I think, unfairly," he added.

"It was a brief meeting with Pedro Rocha and the vice president of Equality. 

"The explanation given is that there have been 'structural changes'.

"I have a clear conscience. I have given 100% and I don't understand it, I didn't see my termination as deserved."

Vilda however claimed he did not see Rubiales kiss Jenni Hermoso due to his position in the line as the Spanish players collected their medals.

"The moment of the kiss. We are in line, I am the penultimate one. 

"And from there I don't see Rubiales' kiss The images surprised me," he said.
