Fans were pictured holding several signs, including a poster calling on manager Jorge Vilda to be removed from his post.
The Spain women’s manager has become a polarizing figure within his squad, with those divisions becoming very apparent at this year’s World Cup.
However, he led his team to an unlikely victory in the tournament – but fans still suggest he should leave.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for the manager, whose future could still remain uncertain despite the feat.
Another fan held up an inscription suggesting that Spain star Aitana Bonmatí is set to win the Ballon d’Or this season after his impressive performances at the World Cup.
The Spaniards will party the night away in Madrid after welcoming their heroes home.
