MADRID, Sep. 2 (.) –
The national soccer coach, Jorge Vilda, insisted that he does not see the “tension” or “division” within Spain that has been leaked in recent days, and pointed out that the “maximum” version of his team this Friday is ” the best thermometer.
“The team has performed at the highest level, with ambition and desire. It is the best test or thermometer to measure how this group is doing,” he said at the press conference after the 3-0 win over Hungary, in line with a perfect phase of qualification for the 2023 World Cup.
Vilda insisted as in the previous one that she does not see “tension” and “division”, despite the fact that the players told her of a general malaise and the need to make changes. “We have seen a team that has had the ball, that has wanted to attack, that has scored goals,” she pointed out.
“A bit of what we have been seeing in training, players with desire, intention to show themselves, to do well. With many scoring options, a very valid game, although we are already classified. Now we are going for the next objective, the perfect classification “, he added.
The coach was also asked about the songs of the fans in Las Rozas (Madrid) who called for his resignation. “Everything is respectable, the public is sovereign, but there have also been chants at the goals for the players, and I try to help out on the wing,” he said, hoping that Mariona Caldentey, who sprained her right ankle, has nothing serious.
