Spanish FA president Luis Rubiales under fire AGAIN over his messages – Daily Mail

By Liam Morgan For Mailonline


Spanish Football Federation President Luis Rubiales has again come under fire after leaked messages revealed he made derogatory comments about Sevilla, Villarreal and Valencia. 
El Confidencial, which has obtained a raft of WhatsApp messages sent by Rubiales, reported that the Spanish FA head told a family member he hoped Sevilla lost their match to Real Madrid during the game at the Bernabeu in 2020.
‘Let’s see if we knock off these basins, I don’t like them,’ Rubiales said, according to El Confidencial. ‘Basins’ is a nickname for Sevilla and the club’s fans.
The under-fire Spanish FA president went on to tell the family member that Sevilla ‘are the 2nd team that I like the least’. ‘In order Villarreal, Seville and Valencia,’ he said in the messages, translated by Football Espana.
Rubiales also asked the person what they thought of Sevilla president Jose Castro. The relative replied by saying he was a ‘clown’, which was met with laughter by Rubiales. 
While the revelations are not as sordid as previous allegations made against Rubiales – he was accused of hosting orgies with Spanish FA money, which he and the organisation have strenuously denied – they could raise questions about impartiality in LaLiga and of treatment endured by certain teams.

It was reported by Spanish outlet El Mundo last month that Rubiales, Spanish FA president since May 2018, has been accused of hosting private parties in which he would ‘invite eight to ten young girls’ to a chalet in the region of Granada. 
The claims are said to have been made by Juan Rubiales – the uncle and former chief of staff of the RFEF president.
It was claimed the parties would be financed under the pretence of a work event, at which the closest members of his team were present.  
El Mundo’s report contains further statements from Juan Rubiales to the country’s anti-corruption department, in which he also accuses his nephew of trying to extract money from the RFEF and use his influence to contract private investigators via a business contracted to the federation.
In a statement responding to the accusations, the RFEF said it ‘laments and categorically denies’ the accusations that have been made, adding they have been made by a former employee ‘motivated by spite’.

The latest drama came months after audio messages between Rubiales and Barcelona defender Gerard Pique were leaked.
According to leaked 2019 messages obtained by El Confidencial earlier this year, Pique is heard discussing the financial details of the deal to bring the Spanish Supercopa to Saudi Arabia.
The defender came under scrutiny after El Confidential reported it had uncovered the talks – when it was revealed Pique’s company pocketed £20million.
As previously reported, Pique, 35, denied any wrongdoing, refuting claims there was a ‘conflict of interest’ due to his role at Barcelona and insisting that he has ‘nothing to ‘hide’.

He is also adamant that the process of hosting the tournament was done ‘legally’.
Football Espana also reported that Rubiales maintained that he acted legally at all times and was disgusted by the hacking of his phone. 
Leaked audio of a conversation between Rubiales and Sergio Ramos also revealed the former Real defender, who is now at PSG, had asked the Spanish FA chief for help to win the Ballon d’Or in 2020.
