The president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation, Luis Rubiales, said about the candidacy of the Spanish porter and international goalkeeper Iker Casillas to the presidency of the Federation that “football will have to contrast “between its management and” what others want to contribute “.“I talk about the work of the Federation, Any person has every right to make their decisions. I talk about what I do and when the date comes football will have to contrast what my team and I have done, what this new federation has done and what others want to contribute “Rubiales said after participating in a meeting at the Higher Sports Council (CSD).The president of Spanish football, who participated with most of the Spanish sports federations in a brief meeting with the new president of the CSD, Irene Lozano, said he does not talk about other candidates and is “in direct contact with the entire world of football”.ANDAs for whether he had communication with Casillas, Rubiales admitted that a message was crossed with the goalkeeper. “You already know that there has been a message, and little else can I say”said Rubiales, who said that “of course” he responded to the Real Madrid exporter and the Spanish National Team.The international goalkeeper of Porto and former captain of the Spanish National Team confirmed this week that he will be running for the presidential elections of the RFEF, before or after the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The RFEF is pending a request for electoral advancement made before the CSD, not yet resolved.Electoral advanceThe president of the RFEF said after a meeting at the Higher Sports Council (CSD) that in the fourteen cases that a sports federation has asked to advance elections has been granted and said he is “convinced” that football will also be given. “Who has to decide is the CSD, but in this year several federations have asked for the advance, three have been answered, all affirmatively, and it is important that it is known that throughout history they have requested it on fourteen different occasions and fourteen have been granted, “Rubiales said Friday.The president of the Football Federation said that the arguments of the federations that have been granted -the gymnastics and triathlon federations, although in other cases of applications, such as basketball, the decision is not yet publicly known-, they are “at least equal” to those of the RFEF. “It is something that contemplates the law and we are convinced that it will be granted,” Rubiales added.In January, the Administrative Court of Sport (TAD) issued a non-binding report that did not support the electoral advance in football because it understands that there are no reasons to justify this change and because according to the terms of the electoral calendar it is impossible to fit it into the first four-month period.When asked about that aspect, Rubiales said that the opinion “does not say that” and insisted that his arguments to advance the elections are “at least the same as those of the rest” and they add the recent classification of the Spanish national football team hall to the World Cup in Lithuania, scheduled for September.Also, the president of Spanish football recalled that his was the only federation that announced the request for electoral advancement in a public manner, at the assembly on December 16, “more than two months ago”“Of the three federations that have been answered positively, with arguments as much as ours, two of them asked for it later, and this is what football understands less, but even so, we have been required more documentation, we have provided it and I am sure that we will soon have an answer, “he added.The president of the Higher Sports Council, Irene Lozano, convener of this first meeting with the sports federations since her arrival in office, explained that the aspect of the electoral advance requested by football is “at the same point” and that the CSD awaits receive a report from the State Advocacy about it.This report was requested, as Lozano explained because there was “an overcoming situation” whereby the Federation presented “new allegations”, which was the classification earlier this month of the Spanish national soccer team to the World Cup in Lithuania, whose dispute will be between September and October.“My word is not the first but the last and it will be the last, first we have to listen”, said Lozano, who did explain that in the cases of other federations, such as basketball, he already has “all the elements of judgment” and when they have the decision taken they will communicate it.Asked if she had communication with the Porto goalkeeper and former Spanish national team captain Iker Casillas, who this week announced her decision to run for the RFEF elections, Lozano admitted that they exchanged mobile messages yesterday.
