FIFA Bans Luis  Rubiales For Three Years

Former President of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) Luis Rubiales has been suspended from all football related activities until 2026.

He was suspended following his ungentlemanly conduct at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

After Spain overcame England to win this year’s edition of the Women’s World Cup, Rubiales kissed Spain forward Jenni Hermoso without her consent.

The scandal sent shockwaves across the football community.

Rubiales initially laughed off the incident, claiming Hermoso consented to the gesture.

Hermoso on her part denied it was with her consent after the uproar.
