Jorge Vilda could once again own a bench sooner than expected. According to the latest information from THT Marrocco, the former Spanish women’s coach would be about to reach an agreement with the Moroccan federation to take over the reins of the country’s women’s project.
Vilda, who was proclaimed world champion with Spain in the last World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, was dismissed from his position by the new RFEF board after the Luis Rubiales scandal on October 5.
Although during the conflict Vilda released a statement distancing herself from the former president’s attitude, her strong relationship with the previous leadership of the federation and the friction with the group made Pedro Rocha make the decision to dismiss him after informing him in a meeting.
With the incorporation of Vilda, the Moroccan women’s team hopes to take the next step in its evolution after participating in the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. In that tournament, the Moroccan team competed for the first time in its history and reached the round of 16, causing a surprise in the group stage, where it eliminated Germany.
Vilda, under investigation for an alleged crime of coercing Jennifer Hermoso, was mentioned by the player herself during her statement before the Prosecutor’s Office that triggered the filing of the complaint. This complaint was initially directed against Rubiales, but Now it also affects the former coach, Albert Luque and Ruben Rivera.
