BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Spanish soccer is in turmoil after 15 players on the women’s national team left the team, saying their coach “emotionally” and “forcefully” harmed their health.

Late Thursday, the federation cited coach Jorge Vilda as the source of the problem after all 15 players sent the same email.

The email sent by the players on Friday was published by local media. The federation confirmed to The Associated Press that the email was authentic and contained the names of the 15 players, which did not include Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putelas.

The email did not explicitly request that Vilda be fired. “The whole state of the Spanish national team, which (the federation) knows about recent events, is having a big impact on my emotional state and my health,” he said.

“Because of that, I don’t think I’m ready for our national team and I’m asking not to be called up until this situation changes.”
