The Spanish women’s football team has denied reports that they left their training camp in Palmy early due to boredom.
The team had been training in the New Zealand city ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, but they cut their stay short and moved to Wellington.
Some reports suggested that the players were bored with Palmy and wanted to move to a more exciting city. However, the team’s spokesperson has denied these claims.
“The decision to move to Wellington was made for purely logistical reasons,” the spokesperson said. “There were no issues with the facilities in Palmy, and the players were happy there.”
The spokesperson added that the team is now focused on preparing for the World Cup, which is being held in Australia and New Zealand in July and August.
“We are confident that we have made the right decision, and we are looking forward to continuing our preparations in Wellington,” the spokesperson said.
The Spanish team is one of the favorites to win the World Cup, and they will be hoping to improve on their performance in the 2019 tournament when they were knocked out in the quarterfinals.
The team is led by Jorge Vilda, who has been in charge since 2015. Vilda has a wealth of experience, and he will be hoping to lead Spain to their first World Cup title.
The Spanish team will face Germany, China, and South Africa in the group stage of the World Cup. They will begin their campaign against Germany on July 8.
