The Spanish Football Federation is standing by the women’s national coach, Jorge Velda, despite receiving threats to resign from 15 players.
More than a dozen Spain stars have emailed the board of directors to say they will quit unless Velda is removed from his position, and insist his management of the team was affecting their mental health.
The Spanish Football Federation issued a strongly worded statement in response, condemning that the selected players had committed a “very serious offense” by refusing to play for the country’s national team.
Threats to resign could also lead to a suspension of up to five years from the national team, and the Spanish Football Federation has demanded an apology from all players involved.
Meanwhile, Spain has stated that it will use players from a lower age group to fill its squad as a result.
The RFEF statement read: “UEFA can confirm that, throughout the day, we have received 15 emails from 15 players from the women’s soccer team… in which they state that the current situation is ‘significantly’ affecting their condition. and their emotional health, and that “as long as this is not reversed”, they resign from the Spanish national team.Read:Man Utd transfer target Cody Gakpo CONFIRMS interest with Erik ten Hag eyeing two new strikers with Antony to join

“The Spanish Football Federation will not allow players to question the continuity of the national coach and his coaching staff, because making these decisions does not fall within their powers,” he added.
Manchester United star Una Batley and Lucia Garcia were among those who sent the emails, along with Manchester City players Laya Alexandri and Leila Wahabi, according to reports in Spain.
Six Barcelona players have also threatened to withdraw from the national team, although it is believed that captain Irene Paredes and Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putillas were not among them.
The Spanish Football Federation, which did not reveal the identities of the 15 stars, issued its full support for the coach and urged the players not to return to the team unless they “realize their mistake and ask for forgiveness”.
