The current world champions are in very good hands. The Asturian Montse Tomé (Pola de Siero, Asturias, 1982), until recently right hand of Jorge Vilda in the senior women’s team and also the head of the Spanish women’s under-17 team, has had a meteoric career in the ranks of the Real spanish soccer federation. She made her debut as a coach just three years ago, after having worked as a technical assistant since 2018, and, under her command, the U17 team has won two runners-up finishes in the U17 UEFA Cup and the World Cup held last year. past corresponding to this same category, the second one that appears in its showcases.

As a footballer, He played as a midfielder and trained in the youth ranks of Oviedo Moderno., the initial name of the women’s section of Real Oviedo and which would become Real Oviedo Femenino for all purposes in 2017. Although, as she herself has confessed, she kicked the ball for the first time in the street, with her friends, she always harbored the illusion of becoming a footballer. The fact that the Oviedo city council recognized her as the best youth athlete in soccer in the years 2000 and 2001 seemed to fuel a dream that in the end would come true with her debut in the highest category of women’s soccer in 2003.

After receiving new recognition from the Oviedo city council in 2004 and remaining in the ranks of the principality’s team until 2007, He made the jump to Levante with which he would win the League title in the 2007-08 season. In 2010, while she was there, she would join the Barça women’s team, the team where she would enjoy herself the most as a player, largely also because of her openly recognized Barcelona feeling. Her experience with the Barça team, however, would ultimately be limited to only two seasons, after which, with a Queen’s Cup also added to her record, she would briefly return to Oviedo Moderno in 2012.

After leaving Oviedo for the last time, he considered signing for Riviera de Romagna of the Italian Seria A but, after spending a month on trial training under the discipline of that team, he finally decided to hang up his boots. At the international level, meanwhile, he played two years with the Spanish under-18 women’s team, with which was runner-up in the French U18 Euro Cupin 2000, and with which he reached fourth place in the 2001 edition, held in Norway. With the senior women’s team, for her part, she played a total of four gamesbetween the years 2003 and 2005, corresponding to the qualification for the Women’s Euro 2005.

After hanging up her boots as a player, however, the soccer bug never left her. Even though she also worked as a Physical Education teacher in a Primary school, she was very clear that the benches had to become her new destiny. At the beginning of 2017, she took a step further to achieve that goal and signed up for a course to obtain the UEFA B License in which she coincided with two legends of Spanish women’s football such as Natalia Pablos y Laura del Rio and former First Division footballers like Manuel Pablo, Juan Carlos Valeron, Javier Saviola, Leo Franco o Fernando Redondo. After obtaining the UEFA Pro License, she would start her stage as a technician. First, as assistant to the until now head of the senior women’s team, Jorge Vilda.
