The former chief of staff of Rubiales denounces that an orgy was paid with money from the Federation

Juan Rubiales, former chief of staff and uncle of the president of the RFEF, Luis Rubiales, declared in April before the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office that money from the Football Federation was used to organize "in early 2020 a party in a private villa in Salobreña" ( Granada), where "a group of eight or ten young girls" were invited, according to the statement to which El Mundo has had access.

The Federation has come forward with a statement where it "deeply regrets and bluntly denies" the accusations, which according to the agency are "a new exercise of falsehoods and manipulation of a former federal employee moved by spite, as well as by his demonstrated alliances and recognized by those who seek a constant deterioration of the image of the president of the RFEF". "This is one more step in the infamous campaign that the president has been suffering in recent months," the message concludes.

On the other hand, Juan Rubiales, according to the leaked statement, explains that the official reason for that meeting was to celebrate "a few days of work, but it was not such." "It was solely for the enjoyment of him and his most direct team, paying the expenses with company cards from the RFEF itself," said the one who was one of the president's trusted men between June 2018 and August 2022, when he was terminated.

On the other hand, Juan Rubiales also assured that his nephew asked him to "find a formula so that money would reach his father", a proposal that he rejected and that angered the president. "He tells him to get out of there that he doesn't want to see him again," Luis Rubiales snapped at him, according to the statement transcribed by the newspaper.

Previously, the top leader of Spanish football was also singled out for allegedly having organized an espionage plot carried out in 2019, a crime to which Juan Rubiales gave truth. He decided "to go against David Aganzo, president of the AFE (Association of Spanish Soccer Players), for which he did not hesitate to hire a detective agency to follow up and find out who he meets, who he talks to, who supports him... ." he explained.

The former chief of staff, previously a journalist for 25 years, assured that "the payment of these surveillance services was carried out through a company of the lawyer Ramón Caravaca" and "subsequently charged to the RFEF". "He had to make life easy for the president, which meant organizing and coordinating trips, agenda, institutional relations and organization of the board of directors, assembly, etc," Juan Rubiales summed up his functions during the four years he was at the RFEF.

The management of Luis Rubiales at the head of the Federation is being investigated as a result of the complaint filed on April 19 by Miguel Galán, coach and member of the federative entity. Galán went to court after listening to the leaked audios in which the president spoke with Barça footballer Gerard Piqué about the commissions derived from the agreement to take the Spanish Super Cup to Saudi Arabia. In the complaint he is accused of corruption between individuals, corruption in business, unfair administration, administrative prevarication and bribery.
