FIFA Opens Disciplinary Proceedings Against Spanish FA Boss Over Kiss


FIFA has initiated disciplinary proceedings against Luis Rubiales, the president of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), following an incident in which he kissed Spanish footballer Jenni Hermoso on the lips after the Women's World Cup final. 

In a statement, FIFA stated that the disciplinary committee is investigating the events that took place during the final, citing potential violations of article 13 paragraphs 1 and 2 of the FIFA disciplinary code.

Jenni Hermoso, along with the union Futpro, issued a joint statement demanding action against Rubiales. 

They emphasized the need for punishment and the implementation of measures to protect female footballers from such unacceptable actions. 

The Liga F, Spain's women's football league, has also called for Rubiales' dismissal. Initially defensive, Rubiales eventually apologized for his behavior, but the criticism against him persists.
