Larrea blasts presidential delay

Spanish FA presidential candidate Juan Luis Larrea has blasted the decision to delay the election because of the unavailability of one of the designated voters.

The current incumbent has been at the helm of the organisation since last summer following long-term president Angel Maria Villar’s arrest for corruption and falsifying documents.

Larrea is going up against former Levante defender Luis Rubiales but the vote – scheduled for 9 April – has been delayed due to Athletic Bilbao’s Oscar De Marcos playing against Villarreal that day.

“I don’t like this situation…there is always something (to delay),” Larrea told El Larguero.

“If there was not a La Liga game on that day, there will be an indoor match, or a women’s match. We must do this as soon as possible and not wait until the end of the season.”
