All photos show him kissing her cheek near her ear.

It does not matter where he kissed the player. He was out of order and needed to be gone. He also put his arm around the queen of Spain.

He forced himself on the player and forced a kiss on her lips. He should be charged with sexual assault.

How can anyone defend him?

He has now stated he will not resign and will go to the courts to fight for his job. The last week should have been about the women winning the WC but instead it as been all about him.

Eeeewwww, he does that with everyone, no matter the country’s culture thats not okay, he even hugged her and squeezed her quite close to his body, eeewww. Poor girls, he crossing boundaries.

I thought they always done all that kissing in the cheek lark as a normal thing in the Mediterranean countries. Maybe things have changed over there you see.

He is a typical man loves attention and be important. Instead of apologize for his shameful acts (hugs,kisses,&held his crotch), he still believes he did nothing wrong and deserves to be still in charge. Thanks to public and media pressure he is now on verge of leaving his post. Also, FIFA instead of straight condemnation of his deplorable acts, prefer investigation while nothing to investigate since his acts seen around the world. Bigger pic. is this issue only highlight corruption in FIFA and all Football federations.

I think he was just caught up in the euphoric moment and hugged and kissed her like lots of southern Europeans do to each other.

Personally, I don't find it that offensive.

She said she didn't like

She said she didn't like it.

It's indefensible.

Falseflag, you really think women are moaning because they're unhappy about how they look, or just trolling ?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's because these women are attractive that they end up getting unwanted sexual advances from people like Rubiales and Harvey Weinstein
