Spanish FA vice president arrested as part of corruption investigation

Spanish FA Vice President Andreu Subies was arrested on Tuesday morning as part of a police operation that also saw former president Angel Maria Villar resign on corruption charges.

Subies, the former president of the Catalan Football Federation (FCF), joined the FA (RFEF) in May after Luis Rubiales was appointed president.

“Subies has been detained as part of an active investigation into the diversion of money from the Catalan Football Federation to private ends,” a Spanish police spokesman told Reuters.

Along with Subies, a member of the FCF was arrested on Tuesday as part of Operation Soule.
