This afternoon Spain played the third match of the qualifying phase of German Euro Cup for next summer. A rivalry that comes after the first victory at home against Norway and the tough defeat against Scotland. So far the team is fourth in the group behind Scotland, Georgia and Norway; although Spain have two fewer games due to last summer’s Nations League dispute which the national team won.
Whatever happens in these two games, both against Georgia and on Tuesday with Cyprus; Luis de la Fuente is untouchable. This is what the new interim president of the Spanish Football Federation thinks, as Mundo Deportivo has learned.
In fact, this is the message that the current president of the federation sent to the Secretary of State for Sports, Victor Francos, in the meeting that was held last Tuesday at the headquarters of the CSD. Within the structural changes being studied in the Federation, as announced by the territorial presidents in their statement on August 28; The figure of the coach who took over in December after the departure of Luis Enrique was not present. This idea of not touching Riojan is shared by a good part of the presidents of the territories. There are some who are denouncing the lynching campaign that Luis de la Fuente is suffering, after his applause in the Assembly on August 25 where Luis Rubiales announced that he will not resign. The next day he made a statement denouncing Rubiales’ behavior and later apologized in a press conference on September 1 when he announced the list for these two meetings.
Only in the hypothetical case that he is dismissed; This decision and the appointment of the new Spanish coach require the approval of the 40 current members of the Board of Directors. This is stated in the Statutes of the RFEF: “Design, at the proposal of the President, the National Selectors, as well as the technical team.”
