By Uwe Jon Munyantwali.– Spanish clubs face being kicked out of the Champions League as the situation centered around Ruibales continues.
Spanish Federation RFEF sent a letter out to UEFA asking to be banned from international competition in a bid to save Ruibales.
This comes after the Spanish government had began legal action against him for his refusal to step down. Stay tuned as Futbol Mundial brings you the best action from the situation of Ruibales and how it could affect Spanish football

Ruibales has been the center of attention in the football world this past week however for all the wrong reasons.
The Spanish FA president was seen kissing on Jenni Hermoso as she walked up to get her World Cup winning medal. He later claimed that Hermoso had consented the kiss that he gave her in an effort to defend himself. However Hermoso later on publicly announced that she never consented the kiss.
Playing in the Champions League brings in a lot of revenue for the club in terms of television and ticket sales
Many players have showed their support for Hermoso and the Spanish team even said they would not play a game until Ruibales was sanctioned. USWNT star Alex Morgan even said it was disgusting that a wonderful moment like winning the World Cup was overshadowed by assault. Betis striker Iglesias even claimed he would not represent Spain again until action was taken.
In terms of Spanish teams being suspended from international competition it would be a huge loss for Spain and Europe. Spanish teams have been starring in Europe for many seasons now and have always managed to light up the competition. This is the last thing that Real Madrid would want as they adore playing amongst Europe’s elite so much. It would especially be a disaster however for Catalan Giants Barcelona if such a thing were to happen.
