A Montse Tomé The victory against him has changed his face and tone. Sweden. If he arrived in Göteborg with the suspicion that his time on the national team bench would be brief, in Córdoba his mood was already different. The victory has relaxed the concentration, the players, and has even provoked support from the Government. The president of the CSD, Victor Francoswho met with her at the Oliva concentration, called her after the victory to reiterate his support, according to TVE and confirmed by the coach herself.
“I appreciate that call. I spoke with him personally that night in Oliva. And, while it is true that I felt confident and that I did not doubt what the profession felt, I appreciate that impulse that is needed at a time like this“, confessed the coach, who in these difficult days has relied on the psychologist that she has incorporated into the coaching staff, Emilio González, and into the press department to face her fourth appearance. “I felt strong, confident, prepared, but no one expects a situation like this. We have adapted and I think well,” Tomé acknowledged.
The coach did not forget that the start was not easy at all, especially due to the position in which the players found themselves after the call. They felt forced and it wasn’t the best start. “During the first days of the concentration We noticed something strange that had to be solved.

I felt strong, confident, I love football. I didn’t transmit that strength from the beginning, but it was a moment.” difficult. What I wanted was for them to focus on football. And it was when we were able to practice our profession that our face changed,” he admitted before acknowledging that, as for any coach, “the results are what make the difference.”

We have known Montse for years and they have known us. Things are calmer with all the members of the delegation. If we give our unconditional support? I couldn’t say anything else. As the captains said, choosing coaches is not our concern,” Aitana said. Good morning.
