Luis Rubiales has given an interview on the Cuatro Todo es Mentira program to give his vision on the resumption of football, the coronavirus crisis and the proposal by Iker Casillas to shift the calendar to a calendar year to balance the change in dates that the 2022 Qatar World Cup will bring. The president of the RFEF defends the end of the season, at any time, and denied that Ceferin has marked August 3 as the deadline.Petition to LaLiga: “First of all, I join in the condolences for Pep Guardiola’s mother. Going into the matter, I want to divide soccer into two large blocks: the thousand licenses for professional soccer and the more than one million licenses under the responsibility of the RFEF. The economic measures of First and Second fall on LaLiga. To the humble clubs, of Second B, Third, Women’s Soccer … We have guaranteed one hundred percent subsidies and a line of credit. We have proposed the same to LaLiga a macro credit that allows you to get out of this so there are no ERTES. Unfortunately, this request has not been met. “ Health and money: “It is important to see that there are two points of view: to return at all costs as soon as possible and that of the RFEF which is to return when it is possible to return, when the health of all is guaranteed. The Federation suspended the competitions before the state and we create a monitoring commission. No matter how large the losses are, in this industry we will recover them in the long term. Health cannot be recovered. “Iker Casillas’ proposal: “We have taken our own proposal. Ceferin has not set a deadline of August 3. When the administration allows it, we will finish the competition, it is fair that everyone faces each other. Playing in the summer is an extraordinary solution, with very high temperatures. It should not be a solution that we have to consider as the first “.
