He will be banned by FIFA for the next 90 days. Luis Rubiales’ suspension began last Saturday. And now, as he explained in the first official statement, Pedro Rocha, President of the Federation, has activated “the internal protocols as a consequence of the suspension”. This suggests he is missing a pro rata part of his salary from Las Rozas, which according to the 2022 financial statements was €339,237.12 net per year, and another €250,000 due to his position as UEFA vice-president. , for which it is also suspended.
The federation, which had already asked for Rubiales’ resignation after the extraordinary meeting of the presidents of the territorial federations, is now trying to get as far away from the previous stage as possible. He wants, according to some leaders, to “stitch” open wounds within the federation after still-banned President Jenni Hermoso gave a non-consensual kiss in the World Cup final.
All electronic devices (computers, mobile phones that were hacked at the time, and tablets) related to his position as president will also be taken away from him. A charge that Rubiales can only bring after the FIFA sanction expires, pending the decision of the Spanish government that wants there to be no expiration date. Let it be sine die.
