Jorge Vilda Rodríguez is a Spanish football coach and UEFA Pro Licence holder.
He was born on July 7, 1981, in Madrid, Spain.
Vilda is the current head coach of the Spain women’s national football team, a position he has held since 2015.
He is also the sporting director of the Spanish FA’s (RFEF) women’s national-team system and tactical instructor at their National Coaching School.
Vilda began his coaching career as an assistant coach at WU17 and WU19 level, before taking the head coach’s position with Spain’s WU17s in 2009.
During five years at the helm, he led the team to two European titles and a runners-up spot at the 2014 World Cup.
Vilda then moved on to coach the Spain U-19 women’s team from 2014 to 2015 before being appointed as the head coach of the Spain women’s national team in 2015.
Recently, Vilda has been at the center of controversy surrounding the Spain women’s national team.
After Spain’s incredible 1-0 victory in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, a photo was released that showed an “ugly divide” between the players and Vilda.
There have been reports of a “civil war” within the team, with players questioning Vilda’s coaching methods and tactics?
Despite leading the team to the World Cup final, Vilda has been criticized and even booed by fans.
However, Vilda has defended his coaching style, saying that “suffering was necessary” for the team to win the World Cup.
Despite the controversy, Vilda remains the head coach of the Spain women’s national team as of August 2023.
Jorge Vilda video
Vilda has been accused of inappropriately touching a female member of his coaching staff during Spain’s World Cup final celebrations.
The incident was captured on video and shows Vilda appearing to touch the chest area of the female assistant while celebrating a goal.
The incident has been widely criticized, and Vilda is facing scrutiny for his actions.
The incident has sparked a conversation about the inappropriate behavior of men in positions of power in women’s sports.
Vilda is not the first man associated with Spanish women’s football to act inappropriately during the World Cup final.
RFEF President Luis Rubiales has also admitted to “making a mistake” by giving Spain star Jennifer Hermoso an unwanted kiss on the lips.
These incidents highlight the need for greater awareness and education around issues of consent and appropriate behavior in women’s sports.
The Spanish Football Federation has not yet commented on the incident, but it is likely that Vilda will face disciplinary action.
The incident has also sparked a conversation about the need for greater accountability and transparency in women’s sports, particularly when it comes to issues of sexual harassment and assault.
