RFEF chief to offer Victor a job if Malaga sack him after explicit video controversy
Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales vowed to offer Victor Sanchez del Amo a job if he is dismissed by Malaga in the wake of an explicit video of him going viral following alleged blackmail.
Malaga suspended their head coach pending an investigation on Tuesday after the clip was shared on social media.
Victor claimed he is the victim of extortion, confirming in a statement on Twitter that the police had been made aware.
Media reports say Malaga are set to dismiss the former Real Madrid and Spain midfielder, and Rubiales – who offered Victor support in a tweet on Tuesday – is unimpressed by the lack of backing the club has given him.
Un gran profesional como @Victor_SDA tiene todo mi apoyo.— Luis Rubiales (@LuisRubiales) January 7, 2020
La intimidad es un derecho inviolable.
Utilizar medios ilícitos para quebrantarlo es inmoral y también delictivo
Y que un tercero se aproveche de ello no tiene nombre.
Además, darle difusión, también es un DELITO. pic.twitter.com/zrhSPaYoCi
Rubiales insists he will offer Victor a job should Malaga opt to get rid of the 43-year-old.
"I had not been on Twitter for two months until the Victor Sanchez del Amo news," he told El Larguero.
"I respect Malaga, but what they have [reportedly] done is a crime. If he loses work, I will offer him to come [to RFEF].
"I will talk to [RFEF sporting director, Jose Francisco] Molina and we will look for a professional job for him in the Federation. We will have open doors."
Malaga are 16th in Spain's Segunda Division, just one point above the relegation zone.Modified 10 Jan 2020, 14:50 IST
