Among the reasons argued were the alleged lack of qualification of the coach, the training routines (deficient for the players) and the results obtained in the last European Championship.

After the stir caused by the mutiny, the three captains of the national team (Irene Paredes, Jennifer Hermoso and Patri Guijarro) appeared at a press conference to deny that they had asked for the head of vilda and that they were limited to listing aspects with which a large number of players are unhappy.
Without any Madrid player
That list of 15 players has been revealed on the Cadena SER program ‘El Larguero’. Ainoha Vicente (Atlético), Patri Guijarro (Barça), Sandra Paños (Barça), Amaiur Sarriegui (Real Sociedad), Leila Ouahabi (Manchester City), Lucía García (Athletic), Mapi León (Barça), Ona Batlle (Manchester United) , Laia Alexandri (Manchester City), Claudia Pina (Barça), Aitana Bonmatí (Barça), Mariona Caldentey (Barça), Lola Gallardo (Atlético), Nerea Izaguirre (Real Sociedad) and Andrea Pereira (America from Mexico).
No Real Madrid player appears on that list of 15 dissident players who will not return to the national team if Vilda continues to be the coach. Neither Alexia Putellasthe best soccer player in the world, nor Irene Paredesone of the captains of the team, nor Beautiful Jennyanother of the great stars.
The pressure from the players did not make a dent in Rubiales, who reiterated her confidence in Vilda. In fact, this week he has renewed and strengthened the ‘staff’ of the women’s teams and Vilda continues to be both the coach and the sports director of all the women’s teams, senior and lower categories.

“This fact has gone from being a sporting issue to a dignity issue. The selection is non-negotiable. It is an unprecedented situation in the history of football, both male and female, in Spain and worldwide,” lamented the RFEF in your statement.
