The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) is standing by women’s national team coach Jorge Vilda, despite 15 players threatening to resign if he is not relieved of his duties.

The players in question, who have not been named, sent “identical” emails to the RFEF, claiming that playing under Vilda was affecting their mental health.

Vilda is a Spanish football coach, who has managed Spain’s women’s national team since 2015. The 41-year-old is also the sporting director of the Spanish FA’s women’s national-team system and tactical instructor at their National Coaching School.

Having been a coach of the youth-level national teams prior to 2015, Vilda has overseen the development of stars like Alexia Putellas and Mariona Caldentey and helped establish them as regular senior-squad members.
