Case against RFEF President reopens

The Provincial Court of Madrid has agreed to reopen a case involving Spanish Football Federation President Angel Maria Villar.

The current leader of RFEF, as well as other members of the governing body, have been accused of allegedly misusing funds back in 2002 when travelling to South Korea and Japan for the World Cup.

The case was officially closed in November 2010, but Judge Adolfo Carretero has ordered it to be reopened thanks to an appeal launched by vice-President of the National Professional Football League [LFP] Javier Thebes.

The case will continue to research alleged misuse of funds for the 'justification of the items and of the cash amounts relating to travel allowances and expenses'.
