Luis Rubiales elected UEFA vice-president
The 41-year-old assumes the position after just three months within European football's governing body.
Luis Rubiales has been elected UEFA vice-president during the Executive Committee meeting held today in Bakú (Azerbaijan). Luis Rubiales' candidacy was put forward by UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin with his election unanimous among members of the committee.
The Canary Islander assumes the role within UEFA a year after his election as head of the RFEF (Spanish FA) and the 41-year-old holds the record for being the youngest executive to hold this position within European football's governing body.
His new position manages to claw back some of the credibility the Spanish FA lost on the continental scene following the arrest of former president Angel Maria Villar in 2017.
