Valencia midfielder David Albelda believes that disunity ois at the heart of Spain’s current problems.
Albelda was speaking in the wake of Sapin’s shock 3-2 defeat to Northern Ireland in the Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.
That result, coupled saw coach Luis Aragones offer his resignation – an offer that was refused by the Spanish Football Federation.
“Whether Luis Aragones is there or not, it will be very difficult to achieve anything because there is no unity, in fact it is more like disunity,” Albelda told Radio Valencia.
“Now people are asking for a change to the players: Carlos Marchena, Juanito, Michel Salgado, Raul and me.
“It seems we are the ones to blame for the failure at the World Cup even though we rarely played.”
Spain are currently fifth in the early Group F standings for the European Championship, after taking three points from their opening two games.
“Spain could have a great team because it has great players. But whoever is chosen it will be very tough because there is so much pressure on the team,” he added.
“The players and the fans are disillusioned. The fans identify more with their clubs, as do the players.”
