Ex-Spanish Football chief embroiled in another ‘kissing scandal’



Luis Rubiales embroiled in another 'kissing scandal'

Former Spanish football chief, Luis Rubiales continues to get embroiled in more ‘kissing scandal’ as it is reported that in the same event for which he was tried for by the FIFA authorities, the now banned football president was also guilty of kissing another female footballer.

It is stated that the disgraced Spanish football chief had forcefully kissed England Women international, Lucy Bronze after the Lionesses defeat to Spain in the Women’s World Cup final.

It is also reported that Luis Rubiales had ‘cupped and stroked’ the face of Laura Coombs at the event, according to reports from the chair of the Football Association.

In findings published by FIFA, it is claimed by FA chair Debbie Hewitt that the Spaniard also acted inappropriately towards England players and was guilty of making her feel ‘deeply uncomfortable’ with his antics.

“The Spaniard ‘cupped and stroked the face of the English player Laura Coombs’ before ‘he seemingly forcefully kissed Lucy Bronze on her face'” Hewitt is believed to have said of the former Spanish chief.

Debbie Hewitt also alleged that Luis Rubiales called her a hypocrite when confronted, with the Spanish chief accusing her of doing her position as FA chair a ‘disservice’.

The reports on Luis Rubiales goes on to state;

“He was tactile with almost all of them, kissing most on the cheek, and giving some multiple kisses in quick succession and holding them very tightly.

“He rubbed some on their back, tapped one on her bottom, grabbed some by their arm, lifted several off their feet, and one was hoisted twice. In most cases, [the Respondent] initiated the hugs and physical contact.

“The hugs were reciprocated but the kisses weren’t. It appeared that some players moved their heads to avoid the kissing. The President of The FA felt deeply uncomfortable and embarrassed.’
