Jorge Vilda: Unfair Dismissal of Spain’s Women’s Coach

Jorge Vilda
Former Spanish women’s football coach, Jorge Vilda, has publicly spoken out about his dismissal, terming it as ‘unfair’ and ‘unexpected’. The Spanish women’s football team dismissed Vilda from his position as head coach on Friday, a decision that surprised many within the football community.

Vilda’s Unexpected Dismissal

Emotions remain high following Vilda’s abrupt dismissal. The former coach expressed his shock at the decision, stating that he was informed of his termination unexpectedly and without clear justification. “I’ve lost count of the number of days I’ve worked over these past few years, dedicating myself to Spanish women’s football,” Vilda admitted during a press conference. “This experience has been demanding and enriching, hence the sudden termination feels unfair.”

A Look At Vilda’s Tenure

Jorge Vilda assumed the position of head coach of the Spanish women’s football team in July 2015. During his six-year tenure, Vilda guided Spain to their first-ever World Cup knockout stage, where they were eliminated by the eventual champions, the USA. On the European level, he guided Spain to the final at the European Championship in 2017. So, under Vilda’s leadership, Spain was beginning to emerge as a formidable force on the international women’s football stage.

The Community’s Reactions

The decision has stirred a considerable amount of reaction from the football community. Numerous players, both past and present, have expressed their support for Vilda on social media platforms. Critics of the decision argue that Vilda’s dismissal is unjust, considering the progress the Spanish women’s team made under his leadership.

Looking Ahead

The Spanish football federation has yet to announce Vilda’s successor, leaving the women’s team in temporary suspense. Regardless of the unfortunate ending, Vilda expressed his gratitude to his players, staff, and the federation, expressing hope and faith in the future of Spanish women’s football. “I am proud of the journey, and I am confident the team will continue to make strides with or without me,” Vilda concluded.

Finally, while Vilda’s chapter comes to a close, the story of Spanish women’s football continues. Now, the focus is on who will step in to fill the void left by Vilda, who can harness the momentum evident within the pioneering squad. So, as fans, players and the federation look to the future, one cannot help but salute Jorge Vilda for his significant contributions to women’s football in Spain.
