Spanish Football Federation acting president Pedro Rocha has reportedly sacked women’s football head coach Jorge Vilda on Tuesday morning ABC. Vilda led Spain to their first Women’s World Cup against England on August 20.

Vilda, 42, was apparently one of the few Spanish coaches not to resign after the Luis Rubiales scandal. Rubiales, the now-suspended president of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) who forcibly kissed Spain midfielder Jenni Hermoso after the World Cup final, vehemently refused to resign before a special meeting of the federation. The RFEF later called for Rubiales to resign.

Vilda became Spain’s coach in 2015 after coaching the U17 team for five years and the U19 team for two years.
