FA Chief Luis Rubiales has defended his actions after being caught on camera kissing Spanish footballer Jenni Hermoso. Rubiales insists that the kiss was innocent and that it was exactly how he would kiss his own daughters. He believes that the truth will come out and that there is no need for a criminal investigation.
The incident occurred during a celebration after Spain’s victory over Germany in the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 final. Rubiales was seen embracing and kissing Hermoso, which sparked controversy and led to calls for an investigation into his behavior.
However, Rubiales has vehemently denied any wrongdoing and has stated that the kiss was purely a gesture of affection. He argues that he has a close relationship with Hermoso and that the kiss was no different from how he would show affection to his own daughters.
Rubiales has expressed his disappointment at the backlash he has received, stating that he believes it is unfair and unwarranted. He has called for people to focus on the success of the Spanish women’s team and their historic victory, rather than on this incident.
Despite Rubiales’ defense, there are still those who believe that his actions were inappropriate and warrant further investigation. The debate surrounding the incident continues, with opinions divided on whether or not Rubiales crossed a line.
It remains to be seen whether a criminal investigation will be launched into the matter. Rubiales, however, remains confident that the truth will prevail and that he will be vindicated.
