Rubiales Finally Resigns And Spanish Women’s Football Can Go Back To Normal

Rubiales Finally Resigns And Spanish Women's Football Can Go Back To Normal

Embattled Spanish FA President, Luis Rubiales has finally bowed to pressure and has resigned after a long battle about his acts during the aftermath of the FIFA Women’s World Cup celebration. 

“It’s over,” Irene Montero, the acting minister of equality in Spain, wrote on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.

Rubiales had been expected to resign at an emergency general meeting of the federation shortly after the World Cup final, but he was very defiant, saying that the criticism was a witch hunt by feminists. 

“The feminist country is advancing faster and faster,” Yolanda Díaz, Spain’s acting Deputy Prime Minister, wrote on X after Rubiales made his resignation public. “The transformation and improvement of our lives is inevitable. We are with you, Jenni, and with all women.”

Giving a public statement about his resignation, Luis said: 

“I don’t want Spanish soccer to be hurt by this exaggerated campaign against me, and above all, I take this decision after being assured that my exit would help contribute to the stability that will allow both Europe and Africa to stay united for their dream of 2030, which will permit the greatest sporting event in the world to go to our country.”

“Insisting on waiting and hanging on would not contribute anything positive (for) either the federation or Spanish soccer, among other reasons, because the powers that be would stop me from returning (to my job).”

The statement from Rubiales late Sunday came at about the same time as the release of clips of an interview he did with TV host Piers Morgan on Britain’s TalkTV.
