The COPE chain has ensured that Mariano Rajoy is willing to stand for election to the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) if one of the candidates has sounded, the exporter of the Real Madrid Iker Casillas, does not.
In the program ‘The great match of COPE’, which last night addressed the issue of the next RFEF elections, journalist Juan Antonio Alcalá explained that Casillas, currently in Porto, is studying if he has enough time to appear to dispute the presidency of Luis Rubiales. Although the goalkeeper’s desire is to be a candidate for the presidency of the Federation, the dates do not add up: in case the elections were before the month of May, the former Real Madrid soccer player would choose not to present a candidacy since he considers that he would not have option to obtain the necessary support to formalize it.
If this happens, COPE has ensured that Mariano Rajoy would be willing to introduce himself. In the information issued by the episcopal broadcaster, it is said that the former president of the Government and the PP sees “with very good eyes” come forward to direct the future of Spanish football.
