The head of Spanish football refused to resign because of the “kiss”. Big trouble ahead?

It would seem that after the scandal that broke out recently in the delivery of the World Cup gold medals to the Spanish women’s team, where a soccer leader kissed Jennifer Hermoso on the lips, everything will end decently and nobly. The president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), Luis Rubiales, admitted that he was moved and gave his word of honor that he would not do this again. The athlete just smiled, supposedly not giving importance to this incident. However, the situation has worsened in recent days.

First, the press got the message that, due to unbearable pressure, the unfortunate Rubiales decided to resign. But a day later he changed his mind and decided to remain in his honorary position, claiming that he didn’t seem to have done anything so shameful. Furthermore, the situation began to develop, as if a snowball was rolling down the mountain.

To begin with, the girls from the same Spanish team got temporary tattoos on different parts of their bodies with the words of Luis’ condemnation. A little later, the case was taken up by longtime moralist and former women’s soccer star Megan Rapino, an American, who bluntly stated literally the following:

“This case made me think about how much we have to endure. The Spanish team had a hard time: some of the players who protested last year are still suspended. Maybe it inspired them. But they could win without him.

He grabbed his groin, this is a demonstration of the depth of misogyny and sexism. What kind of upside down world do we live in? Jenny was supposed to celebrate her victory, but she was sexually assaulted,” Rapino quoted The Atlantic as saying.

Given the piquantity of the episode, even FIFA figures did not remain silent and opened a disciplinary file against the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation. After that, the footballer herself, who until then had only laughed, resolutely defended herself:

“We strongly and strongly condemn behaviors that degrade the dignity of women. We ask the Spanish Football Federation to implement the necessary protocols to protect the rights of the players. We must continue advancing in the fight for equality. We are working so that these types of actions do not go unpunished, ”Sport.es quoted Hermoso.

It could all have ended there, but at some point even well-known men’s soccer stars intervened. Thus, for example, the Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea said on his social networks that he literally “bleeds from the ears” for the referee’s apologies. On the contrary, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, brilliant player and member of the UEFA executive committee, member of the supervisory board of Bayern, jokingly supported Luis Rubiales:

“I don’t think we should exaggerate what happened. When you win the World Cup, you get excited. And what he did was, with all due respect, absolutely normal. I remember the last time we won the Champions League, I kissed men. Not on the lips, but with joy”, quotes Rummenigge AS.

Over time, as often happens, new victims of Rubiales began to appear in the case. One of the Federation employees denounced that she had been sexually harassed by her boss for ten years, and that they even started a case for this matter in 2017, but then everything was resolved without publicity.

At the moment, the Spanish prosecutor’s office has already joined the case. And even the President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, spoke of this:

“What we saw was an unacceptable gesture. Mr. Rubiales’ apology is not enough. And I even think they are inappropriate and Mr. Rubiales needs to continue taking steps to clarify what we have all seen,” CNN quotes Sánchez.

Probably, for Luis Rubiales, all this scandal ends badly. And well, even if it’s just a banal dismissal.
