Infamous Spanish soccer coach Luis Rubiales has resigned from his post as head of the Spanish soccer federation. The resignation comes following weeks of intense criticism over the fact he kissed World Cup winner Jennifer Hermoso without consent.
Posting on social media, the disgraced sports coach confirmed the news in his own words.
“Today, I notified the interim president at 930 pm, Mr. Pedro Rocha, that I have resigned as President of RFEF,” Rubiales said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter. “I have also let him know that I have also resigned my position in UEFA so that my Vice-presidency position can be filled.”
