Former national coach Jorge Vilda will be the new tenant of the Moroccan women’s team bench, as confirmed this Thursday by the Moroccan Football Federation. The Madrid coach will sign a contract for the next four years, coinciding with the outcome of the next World Cup, which for now does not have a venue. Vilda, 42, became world champion last summer at the Australia and New Zealand event. He was later fired following the Rubiales case and this same week he had to testify in the National Court (AN) as a defendant. The coach denies that soccer player Jenni Hermoso was pressured to defend the former federation president, Luis Rubiales.

Vilda took the reins of the Spanish women’s team in 2015 after coming through the youth ranks and led the senior team for the last eight years. Afterwards, the outbreak of Rubiales case It caused his departure – he was confronting the players – and since September 5 he was free. The interim president of the Federation, Pedro Rocha, dismissed him that day and three weeks later he was charged by Judge Francisco de Jorge, who is investigating the alleged pressure that Hermoso received from the coach to go out in public to remove the matter. .

Now, Vilda will take over from Reynald Pedros, recently dismissed by the Moroccan federation. “The Royal Moroccan Football Federation has hired the former Spanish coach, Jorge Vilda, to coach the Moroccan women’s national football team in the next stage as successor to Reynald Pedros, whose duties ceased and who was thanked for the work carried out during his mission at the head of the women’s soccer team, in particular the qualification for the second round of the World Cup tournament,” Morocco confirmed in a statement.
