A woman replaces Velda at the head of the Spanish women’s national football team

Until now, there has never been a woman in charge of the Spanish women’s national football team.


Montse Tomé (41 years old) worked as an assistant to the former coach of Jorge Villeda, captain of the national team, who was dismissed on Tuesday. The press wrote about Tommy that he “became recognized as a key player in the development of the national team.”

Under the leadership of Jorge Villeda, the Spanish women’s national team became world champions in August. It is believed that his ouster is linked to his bad reaction to the kissing scandal, which was marginalized by the president of the Spanish Federation, Luis Rubiales, who refused to resign after he kissed one of the national team players, Gheni Hermoso, on the lips at the World Cup. Medal ceremony.

Rubiales was banned from all sports-related activities by FIFA for 90 days, but nonetheless announced that he would stay, and even threatened Hermoso with legal action. Velda then welcomed Rubiales’ decision, which further upset the mood.

In its statement on Tuesday, the Spanish Football Federation merely published that it thanked the 42-year-old Velda for his work, but it did not mention the scandal. However, acting president Pedro Rocha apologized to fans for Rubiales’ “unacceptable” behaviour, which “caused serious damage to Spanish football and sport”.

The players of the Spanish World Cup-winning team have since announced that they will not play any international matches as long as Rubiales remains in charge of the federation.
