Spain Women's Coach Acknowledges Communication Errors Amid Controversy
The newly appointed coach of Spain's women's national team, Montse Tome, addressed the recent controversy and acknowledged "communication mistakes" during a standoff with the players. This standoff followed a public outcry over the alleged unsolicited kiss on a player's lips by the former president of the Spanish football federation.
Tome, speaking ahead of a match against Sweden in Gothenburg, responded to questions regarding players denying that they had spoken to her before the announcement of the squad for the match. She clarified that there had been a misinterpretation of her words and clarified that she had only communicated with some players, not all of them.
Furthermore, Tome emphasized that she had not heard any players express a desire for her and her coaching team to be removed. She expressed confidence in their work and expressed her desire for the situation to be resolved.
Tome's comments aimed to clarify the recent communication issues and concerns within the team, as they move forward in their preparations and competitions.
