Spanish women's national team coaching staff resigns amid Luis Rubiales scandal

Aug 26, 2023

The Spanish women's national team coaching staff announced Saturday it will resign in the wake of Spanish soccer federation president Luis Rubiales' actions at the World Cup and his subsequent refusal to step down. Head coach Jorge Vilda does not appear to be part of the group, though.

In total, 11 coaches were named in the mass resignation letter, including assistants Montserrat Tomé Vázquez, Eugenio Gonzalo and Javier Lerga.

This announcement came a day after the Spanish soccer team players said they would not compete as long as Rubiales remains the federation president.
