The FIFA Disciplinary Committee, through a report created based on what happened during the Women’s World Cup final, maintains that Luis Rubiales has created an “irreparable damage to the world of football”. In addition, the highest football body points out that the former president of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) “has very considerably damaged the image, reputation and integrity of football”.
El Mundo has had access to this document, used to suspend the former president of the RFEF from his position as president of the RFEF.
In this document, the institution presided over by Gianni Infantino also considers reprehensible the non-consensual kissing of Jenni Hermoso and the touching of his genitals carried out in the presidential box, in front of, among other personalities, Dona Letizia and Princess Sofia. For FIFA it is intolerable “to have pressured the player and her entourage to testify in his favour”, after the scandal broke after the arrival of the players.
Therefore, FIFA considers it very important for the future that Luis Rubiales can no longer exercise the “predominant position as president over Hermoso and other players as well as workers of the RFEF”, a fact that has been proven on certain occasions as in the threat to Hermoso “with legal measures simply because she expressed her opinion about what happened”.
