2023 WWC: Spanish FA Chief, Luis Rubiales to announce resignation over kiss scandal

FIFA opens disciplinary proceeding against Spanish President over kiss scandal

Luis Rubiales, the president of the Spanish Football Federation, is set to step down on Friday.

This comes after he forced Jenni Hermoso, a Spanish striker, into a kiss as the medals for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 were being presented.

The 46-year-old football executive reportedly provoked a significant outcry when he grabbed 33-year-old Hermoso by the head and kissed her on the lips.

The striker declared in the open that she “did not like it.”

FIFA on Thursday issued a statement stating that they have started disciplinary proceedings against the head of football, Rubiales, after several requests for his dismissal.

Widespread reports in the Spanish media on Thursday night claim he has now decided to resign and has called an emergency general assembly on Friday.

Spanish radio station, Cope is reporting that Rubiales will resign during the meeting.

The football chief told his ‘close circle’ of the decision on Thursday evening.
