Interim Spanish soccer federation president Pedro Rocha reportedly fired women's soccer head manager Jorge Vilda on Tuesday morning, according to ABC. Vilda led Spain to its first Women's World Cup championship over England on Aug. 20.

This decision comes hours after the federation (RFEF) apologized for "the inappropriate conduct of Luis Rubiales" in a statement.

Vilda was also the main subject of a mass resignation by Spanish women's soccer players in 2022. Fifteen players walked away from the team after they asked either Vilda to step down or for Rubiales to fire him. Players called Vilda's demeanor "dictatorial" and said the culture around the team negatively affected their mental health
