While the Spanish team was preparing at the Las Rozas Football City for the friendlies against Colombia (this Friday at 9:30 p.m., La1) and against Brazil (next Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabéu), the Central Operational Unit ( UCO) of the Civil Guard registered the offices of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for alleged irregularities in the contracts signed in the last five years, such as the one that was agreed for the Spanish Super Cup to be moved to the country Saudi Arabia.

“We did not find out about the arrival of the UCO. It will not influence our game, but we are not oblivious to what happens. That the measures that must be taken be taken and responsibilities be determined, if there are any. We are focused on a great responsibility. It is not pleasant because of the image it gives,” said Luis de la Fuente, La Roja coach. Along the same lines, Rodri added: “It was a surprise. We found out after training. It’s bad news.”

De la Fuente landed in Las Rozas in 2013. At that time, Ángel María Villar was in charge of the RFEF. From the U19 he jumped to the U21, to later inherit the senior team after the World Cup in Qatar, always with Luis Rubiales as president. “We have to focus on what we have to be focused on. These are things that do not depend on us. “We are going to help Spanish football be admired for its football,” De la Fuente responded. The coach, initially close to Rubiales – he applauded the grotesque speech when the former president insisted that he was not going to resign – the coach distanced himself. Since then, he has had to weather different storms, such as the hurricane due to the goodbye of Sergio Ramos de la Roja, a tough defeat against Scotland and, of course, the departure of Rubiales from the national team after his non-consensual kiss with Jennifer Hermoso during the celebration of the women’s world cup.

“You get used to everything,” said De la Fuente. “But,” he added; “It’s not nice. I enjoy talking about football. I am a coach. In other scenarios I feel uncomfortable.” Rodri is no longer surprising. “There are already many of these. “We have become experts in isolating ourselves in these types of things,” concluded the Manchester City player.
