The Spanish record goalscorer Jennifer Hermoso has sided with the 15 “rebels” who, due to the bad relationship with coach Jorge Vilda, do not want to be called up to the national soccer team for the time being.
“I want to publicly express my unconditional support for my teammates“Wrote the 32-year-old on Wednesday (September 28th, 2022) with reference to the action of her fellow players on social networks.
This means that the front against Vilda has a prominent name richer – Hermoso is not only the top scorer in Spain (46 goals), but also in FC Barcelona. She is currently playing for CF Pachuca in Mexico, having missed the European Championships in the summer due to an injury.
Confrontation course to the Spanish Federation
“Not only do I understand the reasons, but I have also experienced many of these feelings“, Hermoso continued. The 15 players had previously stated that the current situation under Vilda “considerably” in your “emotional state” and yours “Health” affect.
The Spanish FA reacted angrily to the comments, saying that “not allowed the players to question the situation of the national team coach and the coaching staff as this decision is not within their competence“. The association initially interpreted the protest as a resignation from the national team, but the players disagreed. They also never called for the coach to be fired.
