it’s chaos within La Roja, the players on strike

This Monday, the announcement of the players selected for the next gathering of the Spanish national team had the effect of a bomb. Indeed, while 39 players had announced their withdrawal from the selection following the Rubiales affair, 21 of them were retained by Montse Tomé, the new coach of La Roja. Wishing for a total overhaul of the RFEF, these striking players expressed their dissatisfaction through an official press release to denounce the methods of their federation and evade this obligation. “As elite professional players and after everything that happened today, we will study the possible legal consequences to which the RFEF exposes us by registering us on a list which we had requested not to be part of for reasons already explained publicly and in more detail to the federation, and thus make the best decision for our future and our health. We believe that it is relevant to emphasize, in this regard, that the summons was not made in time and form, in accordance with art. 3.2 of Annex I of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players, and we therefore understand that the RFEF is not in a position to require us to present ourselves.we can read in particular in the latter.

The rest after this ad

The 21 Spanish players are now seeking legal means to avoid going to the rally while regretting that“once again that our Federation has placed (them) in a situation that we would never have wished for”. While the Spanish world champions are due to appear this Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. at Football City in Las Rozas, these 21 players are relying on two legal arguments to avoid this meeting. Indeed, as reported AS, their press release stating that they were not eligible and the fact that the RFEF did not warn their clubs sufficiently early according to FIFA regulations are the two weapons of Alexia Putellas’ teammates. As a reminder, if their defense is not deemed suitable, the Iberians will face potentially huge sanctions. Article 22 of the new Sports Law specifies that in the event of a summons, players are obliged to report to the club if they do not want to face two to five years of suspension of their licenses and a fine. which can go up to 30,000 euros.
