Spanish FA boss says he wasn’t part of the match-fixing scandal

In the recent weeks, there has been an investigation regarding a match-fixing scandal in some matches of the La Liga tournament.

The Spanish La Liga match-fixing scandal is set to engulf many guilty footballers, as it continues to develop.

But for Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales, his institution had nothing to do with it.

“[Regarding Operation Oikos,] I am not there, there’s not a lot to say,” Rubiales told Marca.

“It was a surprise because when things are done right, there’s nothing to worry about.”

He explained: “I can only say that we at the RFEF have acted in an exemplary manner.”

“It’s a shame that we weren’t contacted before they went public [with the summary], but each to their own.”

But he didn’t want to talk about that scandal, and he changed the subject to talk about the U21 Spain national team squad playing in the U21 EURO.

The Blaugrana manager believes the team is thinking in the long-term as he has signed three footballers this summer.

“Against Italy in their back yard, with a stadium that can hold more than 30,000 people, it’s going to be a brilliant experience for our youngsters,” said Rubiales.

“We’ve got a winning mentality and the players are going to give it their all.”

“The format is tough but that just makes it even more exciting and rewarding for the team that wins.”

“I’m sure that they are going to do well,” he concluded.
