Tato has been a director since December 2018 after being part of the candidacy headed by Aitor Elizegi who won the presidential elections and since that date “He has actively participated in promoting Athletic women's football”.

In its statement, the rojiblanca entity thanks the Bilbao lawyer for “all her dedication and contributions” in these months and wishes her “the greatest personal and professional success for the future.” His departure leaves the board with 16 members. Although another vice-secretary would have to be appointed, the president is not obliged to fill his gap. Tato could join the RFEF to lead women's football, claimed by President Rubiales.
