The Royal Spanish Football Federation considers allegations of sexual harassment by Tamara Ramos, a former colleague of RFEF President Luis Rubiales, groundless.
Ramos’ words are intended to damage Rubiales’ reputation by taking advantage of the media hype following the kissing incident, RFEF said in a statement.
Ramos served as marketing director for the Spanish Footballers’ Association (AFE) when Rubiales was in charge. Tamara filed a lawsuit against a sports official in 2017 for sexual harassment. As a result, a pre-trial agreement was reached on the harassment case.
Recall that the women’s national team of Spain became the world champion in football for the first time in history. During the awards ceremony, the head of the RFEF kissed the football player of the national team Jennifer Hermoso. He later stated that he did it on emotion.
Earlier, the Professional Women’s Football League of Spain demanded to disqualify Rubiales.
