MADRID, May 18. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), Luis Rubiales, denied having made recordings to the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, nor “to any minister or any member of United We Can”, according to the RFEF in a statement .
In the same note, the RFEF pointed out that its lawyers are waiting to learn of the existence of “hypothetical new audios” to determine who has been able to carry out these “alleged recordings” of which it is not aware in order to “purify responsibilities” and “make available” to the open investigation all the information in its possession.
The objective, according to the Spanish Federation, is to “clarify” which internal collaborators and external people have been able to leak the audios to El Confidencial to “falsely attribute certain behaviors” to its president Luis Rubiales and “build a campaign of harassment and discredit” against him .
“This is a smear campaign orchestrated from a very clear and defined group of people in order to destroy the reputation of Luis Rubiales, a victim of these maneuvers and all those who are behind collaborating with the same objective,” denounced the RFEF in the note.
