Heads continue to roll at the top of Spanish football following the Rubiales affair: the Real Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has just fired the organisation’s director of ethics, Miguel García Caba, accused by the world champions of being the one who wrote the document in which Rubiales stated that the kiss with Jenni Hermoso had been consensual.
There is also a clash over the striker’s failure to be called up to the national team: the Women’s Institute, a body under the Ministry of Equal Opportunities, has warned that Hermoso’s exclusion from the match against Sweden is not legal, as it is of a worker who reported harassment while carrying out a professional activity.
Furthermore, on the judicial front, the Prosecutor’s Office investigating Rubiales’ kiss has called three of Hermoso’s teammates as witnesses. After much controversy, the ‘Roja’ will play their first official match tonight at 6.30pm, a month after winning the World Cup in Australia.
