FIFA pushing for Luis Rubiales to be banned for 15 years over kissing scandal

FIFA will push for Spanish FA president, Luis Rubiales, to be banned from football for 15 years, according to the Daily Mail.

This comes after his own federation dramatically withdrew their support for him.

Spanish FA chiefs asked the 46-year-old to resign with immediate effect.

They claim his “unacceptable” behaviour had caused “grave harm to the image of Spanish football”.

The U-turn followed a threat from FIFA to ban Spain’s national teams and elite clubs from international competition if the Spanish FA refused to accept their punishment of Rubiales.

FIFA is now pushing to ban Rubiales for up to 15 years. This is the maximum length that is permitted by their statutes.
