World champion coach Vilda takes over Morocco’s women’s team | kicker
At the beginning of September, Jorge Vilda was fired in Spain, and now the world champion coach has a new coaching job again – in Morocco.
On the sidelines for Morocco in the future: Jorge Vilda.
Jorge Vilda was already criticized before the 2023 World Cup after a player revolt, but Vilda still won the World Cup title with the Spaniards for the first time. Afterwards he still had to leave because his attitude to the kissing scandal involving former association boss Luis Rubiales was his downfall.
Now the 42-year-old has found a new employer, Vilda is once again taking over a women’s national team. As the Moroccan Football Association (FRMF) announced on Thursday, the Spaniard will be introduced as Morocco’s new coach on Sunday.
At the last World Cup, Morocco made it into the round of 16 for the first time under Frenchman Reynald Pedros, where they lost 4-0 to France. Nevertheless, the North Africans have acquired a taste for it. Vilda’s task is clear: he should lead Morocco to the 2027 World Cup.
