The United States are looking for a new coach following the resignation of Vlatko Andonovski, who oversaw their worst World Cup ever when they went out in the last 16 in Australia and New Zealand.
The 53- time-old’s stock as a periodical winner has risen steadily since securing the European crown jewel with her native Netherlands in 2017, also doing the same with England last summer.
She has now guided England to a first- ever Women’s World Cup final, in the process getting the only director to do so with two different nations in the showpiece after steering her home country to the same stage four times agone.
Vlatko Andonovski has stepped down as trainer of the United States after the four- time titleholders produced their worst- ever World Cup performance in Australia, exiting in the round of 16.
Jill Ellis, who was in charge of the US winning juggernauts in 2015 and 2019, told journalists in Sydney on Thursday that while a hunt for a relief should include different campaigners, the new trainer’s gender shouldn’t be the decisive factor.
Asked if the FA would reject an approach should the United States come courting the three- time FIFA Best award winner, Bullingham incontinently replied” 100 per cent. It isn’t about plutocrat. We’re veritably, veritably happy with her and we feel she’s happy.
“We have seen lots of rumours, and look, she’s a special gift. We know that. From our side, she’s obviously contracted through until 2025. We suppose she’s doing a great job. We are obviously huge sympathizers of her and I suppose hopefully she feels the same way.”
Bullingham said the FA would stay until after Wiegman takes a well- meritedpost-tournament vacation before striking up any exchanges about extending her stay.
While Bullingham believes Sarina Wiegman could have any job in football, he admitted it could still be some time before an England women’s director would be compensated inversely to their men’s counterpart.
He added” I suppose over time, I suppose there is where you’ve got to get to. However, that is why you’ve got a difference, If you look at the difference in the request and the income coming in.
“I would say that Sarina is, within the request she operates, well- paid. And if you look at the comparison in the men’s game, it’s a different request. I really want those requests to combine, over time, and I suppose that is where you’ve got to go, but we are not there yet.”
Former National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) trainer Andonovski took the arm in 2019 after the US collected a alternate successive world title but they’ve failed to keep that instigation going.
He led the platoon to citation at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 but injuries hindered a largely inexperienced US side at this time’s World Cup in New Zealand and Australia and they lost to Sweden 5- 4 on penalties in the knockout stage.
“It’s been the honour of my life to trainer the talented, hard- working players of the USWNT for the once four times,” Andonovski, 46, said in a statement.
“While we’re all dissatisfied by the outgrowth at this time’s World Cup, I’m immensely proud of the progress this platoon has made, the support they have shown for each other, and the alleviation they have handed for players around the world.” Know More Latest Women’s Football News…
