Spanish Federation to hold emergency General Assembly this week after President Rubiales’ kiss scandal

Despite Spain winning the Women’s World Cup for the first time in history at the weekend, the stories since then have not been dominated by matters on the pitch, but an incident involving RFEF President Luis Rubiales and La Roja star Jennifer Hermoso.

Rubiales kissed Hermoso during the post-match celebrations and the incident has been widely condemned across Spain, with many prominent figures calling for Rubiales to resign as head of Spanish football.

While this seems unlikely at this stage, the RFEF has taken the decision to call an emergency General Assembly, which will take place on Friday, so that its members can discuss the incident.

It remains to be seen what conclusion the Assembly will have during this meeting, but this scandal will not die down soon.

Rubiales will surely find it very difficult to stay in his role as president of the Spanish Football Federation.
