Luis Rubiales has resigned from his roles at the Spanish FA and UEFA

Luis Rubiales has announced he has stepped down from his role as the president of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) after kissing Jenni Hermoso following the Women’s World Cup final.

The former Spain FA chief confirmed the news during a sit-down interview with Talk TV’s Piers Morgan. His conduct sparked huge backlash among the footballing world and general public and he admits the fallout has since made his role untenable.

Pressed for comment on whether he would resign by Morgan, Rubiales conceded: “I am going to – of course I cannot continue my work.” He later added that he was helped to come to his decision by consulting his father and daughters.

“They know it’s not a question about me,” he added. “Some friends very close to me said ‘Luis, now you have to focus on your dignity and continue your life – if not, you are probably going to damage people you love and the sport you love’. In this situation now, this is the thing that I have to do.”

At the time of his interview airing, Rubiales tweeted out a link to an official statement, along with the words: “I will defend my honorability. I will defend my innocence. I have faith in the future. I have faith in the truth. Thank you all.”

His statement read: ”I have presented my resignation from the position of president of the RFEF. I have also informed you that I have done the same with my position at UEFA so that my position in the Vice Presidency can be replaced.

After the quick suspension carried out by FIFA, plus the rest of open proceedings against me, it is evident that I will be able to return to my position. Insisting on waiting and holding on is not going to contribute to anything positive, neither to the Federation nor to Spanish football.”

Rubiales added he did not “want Spanish football to be harmed” as they prepare to launch a bid to host the 2030 World Cup, while he thanked all those who have supported him.
