FC Barcelona statement
FC Barcelona wishes to make clear that it considers totally improper and inappropriate the RFEF president's behaviour during the Women's World Cup final celebrations
After the Extraordinary Assembly of the RFEF (Spanish Football Federation) held on Friday it appears that the explanation given the president of the Federation, Mr. Rubiales, has been sufficient for the members present at the Assembly who have the authority to confirm him in his position.
FC Barcelona, however, wishes to make clear that it considers totally improper and inappropriate the RFEF president's behaviour during the celebrations for the World Cup victory achieved by the Spanish Women's team. The incident we consider to be deplorable and Mr. Rubiales himself has admitted it was an error and has apologised.
In the light of his unjustifiable incident, FC Barcelona remains committed to its policy of supporting women's sport, equality between men and women in sport and in society in general, and of guaranteeing the safety of women in sport and denouncing any behaviour that violates our principles and Statutes.
