The Spanish Player’s Association (AFE) have asked for the President of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), Luis Rubiales, to be removed from his position.
Relevo report on a leak from El Confidencial in a court case, which reveals that Rubiales allegedly ordered an investigation into President of the AFE, David Aganzo. That investigation involved surveillance and a private investigation. Rubiales denies he order the investigation.
Lawyer Ramon Carravaca, formerly of the RFEF, is alleged to have admitted that Rubiales did order an investigation into Aganzo in order to dig up dirt on his rival. Rubiales denies this is the case.
However the AFE expressed their ire with a statement asking for Rubiales immediate suspension by the government, given his supposed involvement in these illegal activities. They say that the illegility of his actions, the negative on the image of the RFEF, and the undermining of the AFE are reasons to suspend him immediately.
The pair are political rivals, Aganzo and Rubiales, and some believe the investigation was in order to dig up dirt on Aganzo, but there is no proof of that yet.
