The head of the Spanish soccer federation faces possible prosecution for kissing a star player on the lips following Spain's World Cup victory amid increasing pressure for him to resign...
Spanish prosecutors opened a criminal investigation on Aug. 29 into whether the kiss was an act of sexual assault.
Some things to keep in mind. First, the woman herself only started objecting after a feminist outcry:
She then initially downplayed it in a statement, saying it was a "mutual gesture that was totally spontaneous" and "a natural expression of affection and gratitude."
However, she now says she was pressured into making that statement and sees the incident completely differently.
"At no time did I consent to the kiss that he gave me," she said.
She added in a statement that she “felt vulnerable and the victim of aggression, an impulsive, sexist act which was out of place and with no consent on my behalf," according to ESPN.
Second, unlike in the more enlightened countries such as the US, his family are standing by him:
Rubiales' family is defending him against the backlash to the point where his mother has locked herself in a church and gone on a hunger strike, according to his cousin.
Third, he correctly refused to " do the right thing and resign":
The Spanish soccer federation demanded that he "immediately resign" because of “the latest events and the unacceptable behaviors that have seriously damaged the image of Spanish football," according to a news release in Spanish.
Initially, they supported him, btw:
The Royal Spanish Football Federation withdrew its support of Rubiales after an emergency meeting on Monday night after having initially backed him when FIFA announced it was investigating the kiss.
So I wonder who is it really demanding his blood?
If they fire him, which they'll probably do he should sue them for the wrongful termination and do the same with his accuser. There is a lesson in this all: whatever happens, don't go into this night gently.
P.S. May be this sheds some light on who is behind this all:
McDonald’s has teamed up with FIFA as a sponsor of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023 and the FIFA World Cup 2026.
