Who has replaced Jorge Vilda as Spain’s head coach?

Jorge Vilda was sacked earlier today, just over two weeks after winning the Women’s World Cup with Spain in Sydney, Australia.

Montse Tomé has officially taken over from Vilda. Despite being on Vilda’s coaching staff, Tomé’s relationship with the players is good and she was one of the members of staff who had the most contact with the dressing room and who got on best with the squad, as reported by AS.

The 41-year-old Asturian becomes the first ever female Spanish women’s national team coach.

It now appears that the choice of Tomé as the new head coach, together with the departure of both Vilda and president Luis Rubiales, will bring the players back to the national team after the statement in which they stated that they would not return until there were structural changes in place.

The RFEF (Spanish FA) had spoken to the bulk of the national team about the choice of Tomé as coach in a bid to restore some stability.
