Alcaraz, about Rubiales: “These are attitudes that a senior position does not have to show”


The Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz indicated this Wednesday that the behavior of Luis Rubiales, suspended by FIFA as president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), during the celebration of the Women’s World Cup are “attitudes that a senior position does not have to show” , regretting at the same time that “so much credit has not been given” to the “historical fact” achieved by the Spanish women’s team.

“My opinion is that, I’m going to be honest, they are attitudes that for a high position do not have to be shown,” said the Murcian emphatically at a press conference during the US Open, fourth ‘Grand Slam’ of the season.

Thus, Alcaraz criticized Rubiales’ behavior in the box at Stadium Australia during the celebration of the first Women’s World Cup won by Spain, as well as the subsequent kiss on the lips of the soccer player Jenni Hermoso. Controversies that the Murcian hopes “to be resolved soon.”

“The women’s team has made a historic achievement and that so much credit has not been given for what has happened is a shame. That is my only reflection,” the Spanish tennis player settled emphatically.

The man from El Palmar appeared before the media after overcoming the first round of the US Open this morning, the fourth ‘Grand Slam’ of the season and which is played on a hard court in New York (United States), after abandoning due to injury from the German Dominic Koepfer in the second set, when Alcaraz won 6-2, 3-2.
