The Spanish Football Association officially announced that Rubiales will be re-elected as President of the Spanish Football Association until 2024.
Rubiales had an overwhelming advantage in the voting process. He got 95 votes, while another chairman candidate Blanco got only 10.
As a player, Rubiales joined Valencia at the age of 17 and was selected for the Spanish U18 team a year later. However, the injury to his left knee greatly affected him who had not yet participated in the professional league. After moving to Jerez and other low-level league teams, Rubiales joined Levante and became the team's captain, eventually retiring in Hamilton, Scotland. After retiring, he served as the chairman of the players union.
In 2018, Rubiales was elected president of the Spanish Football Association. Before the start of the World Cup in Russia, Lopetegui directly fired Lopetegui and temporarily arranged Hierro to take office because of his private contact with Real Madrid, showing his toughness. And the "do it your own way" side.
