Exclusive: Senior Spanish soccer officials to go in wake of Soccer World Cup kiss row-source

Spain’s football federation (RFEF) is set to undergo significant personnel changes, with between six and nine senior officials being asked to leave their positions or facing termination. This move is aimed at resolving a potential player boycott of the national team. A federation source informed RushHourDaily about these developments, although the exact timing of the personnel changes remains unclear. RushHourDaily has been unable to reach the individuals on the list for comment. Pablo Garcia, the RFEF spokesperson, has not yet responded to RushHourDaily’ request for comment.

The decision to remove these officials comes in response to a statement made by disgruntled players last week. In the statement, the players expressed their refusal to represent the national team as long as individuals who supported or condoned actions that undermined the dignity of women remained within the federation. The players specifically mentioned those who incited, concealed, or applauded such behavior.

The turmoil within Spanish soccer began when Luis Rubiales, the former RFEF chief, kissed midfielder Jenni Hermoso on the lips during the World Cup presentation ceremony. This incident sparked controversy and led to Rubiales’ resignation on September 10. The aftermath of this event has created a tense atmosphere within the federation, prompting the players to take a stand against those they believe have compromised women’s dignity.

In conclusion, the RFEF is taking steps to address the concerns raised by the players and avoid a potential boycott. By removing several senior officials, the federation aims to demonstrate its commitment to upholding women’s dignity and ensuring a respectful environment within Spanish soccer. The timing of these personnel changes is yet to be determined, and RushHourDaily has been unable to obtain comments from the individuals involved. The RFEF spokesperson, Pablo Garcia, has not responded to RushHourDaily’ request for comment.
