The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) is in turmoil. Its president, Luis Rubiales, in office since May 2018, is suspected of having organized orgies with RFEF money. According to the newspaper El MundoJuan Rubiales, the former chief of staff of the RFEF and uncle of Luis Rubiales, implicated, on May 30 in a voluntary declaration before the anti-corruption prosecution, his nephew whom he accuses of having dipped into the coffers of the federation to organize fine games.
He mentions the rental of a private chalet in Salobreña at the beginning of 2020, paid for with a company card from the RFEF. This chalet, officially rented for “a few days of work”allegedly actually used by Juan Rubiales “only for his pleasure and that of his team” and hosted orgies, denounces Juan, specifying that “ a group of 8 to 10 young girls were invited by a former footballer and friend of the president. »
Sacked from his post as chief of staff of the RFEF last August, Juan Rubiales also blamed his nephew for having asked him, a few days earlier, to use the coffers of the RFEF “to bring money to his father”. A request that Juan Rubiales says he categorically rejected and which would have precipitated his dismissal.
Accusations denied by the RFEF
The RFEF rejects en bloc “these totally false accusations: neither on this date nor on any other has a single euro been spent on matters that are not specific to federal activity”said the body to El Mundo.
Still, the judicial noose is tightening around Luis Rubiales, already targeted by an investigation into the organization of the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia, where he is suspected of having put pressure on the authorities of Riyadh so that Kosmos, the company directed by Gerard Pique, receives a commission of 24 M€, according to the Spanish media El Confidential.
