Spain defeated England 1-0 in the final to claim their maiden FIFA Women’s World Cup title.
Luis Rubiales, the chairman of the Spanish Football Federation, apologised on Monday for kissing star player Jenni Hermoso on the lips after Spain won the Women’s World Cup. Rubiales, 45, planted the kiss on Hermoso after she collected her order following the final in Sydney, provoking outrage in Spain.” clearly I made a mistake and I’ve to admit that,” Rubiales said in a videotape posted on social media by Spanish TV.” It was done without any ill intention in a moment of the loftiest vibrance. Then we saw it as natural and normal but outside it has caused a commotion.
“I’ve no choice but to apologise and to learn from this. and when representing the confederation take further care,” he said, adding that he allowed the rampage was” idiotic”.
Before Spain’s sports minister on Monday had demanded that Rubiales apologise.
“I suppose it’s inferior to kiss a player on the lips to compliment her,” acting minister Miquel Iceta told Spanish public radio.
“The first thing he has to do is to give explanations and make justifications, it’s the logical and reasonable thing to do,” Iceta said.
The minister added that while the 1- 0 palm over England on Sunday in Sydney was” a moment of violent feelings”, public officers” have to be extremely careful because we’re giving a communication to society and the communication is equal rights, it’s respect”.
Rubiales on Monday stressed that he’d a” magnific relationship” with Hermoso.
On Sunday, the player posted a videotape on Instagram showing the fests in the changing room in which she responded to teasing from platoon- mates by saying” I did not like it, eh!” while laughing.
Latterly on Sunday the confederation released their own quotations from Hermoso.
“It was a completely robotic collective gesture because of the immense joy that winning a World Cup brings,” Hermoso was quoted as saying.
“The chairman and I’ve a great relationship. His geste with all of us has been outstanding and it was a natural gesture of affection and gratefulness.
“A gesture of fellowship and gratefulness can not be gone over so much, we’ve won a World Cup and we aren’t going to diverge from what’s important.”
Spain’s medications for the World Cup were thrown into disarray last September when 15 players transferred an dispatch to the Spanish confederation saying they didn’t want to be considered for selection.
Their kick was aimed primarily at trainer Jorge Vilda and his styles, including complaints that he was too strict. Know More Latest Women’s Football News…
