Spanish FA president REFUSE to resign over World Cup ‘kiss-gate’
Spanish FA President Luis Rubiales will not bow to pressure and resign from his role within the nation’s governing football body, according to reports, after sparking mass controversy by kissing Jenni Hermoso on the mouth and appearing to grab his crotch while celebrating Spain’s Women’s World Cup victory.
The 46-year-old has faced calls to quit following his podium actions, with Spain’s prime minister Pedro Sanchez demanding an explanation for the official’s actions.
Rubiales will appear before the Spanish Football Federation on Friday after an emergency meeting was called where he will face questions over the World Cup fiasco.
A press release calling for a meeting stated: ‘The Royal Spanish Football Federation convenes, as a matter of urgency, an Extraordinary General Assembly for next Friday, August 25, starting at 12 noon, at the headquarters of the Ciudad del Fútbol de las Rozas.’
However, Rubiales has no plans to step down from his position and instead seeks to continue as FA president, as reported by AS.
He will instead apologise again for his actions and attempt to provide a reasoning for his shocking display of affection that Hermoso revealed she ‘did not enjoy’.
Rubiales is seeking a UEFA representative to support his bid to stay in his role and wants to continue as president despite complaints being made about him to the FA.
