'This type of act does not go unpunished': Borja Iglesias claims he won't return to Spanish national team with current Luis Rubiales situation

Real Betis striker and Spain international Borja Iglesias claims he will not return to the Spanish national team unless something changes around Luis Rubiales.

Earlier Spanish FA chief, Luis Rubiales, stated that he won't resign from his position despite all the controversy around his kiss on the lips with Jenni Hermoso.

In response, Betis striker Iglesias posted on social media: "I am sad and disappointed. As a footballer and as a person I don't feel represented by what happened today in the Ciudad del Fútbol de Las Rozas (the Spanish FA headquarters). I find it sad that they continue to press and focus on a colleague (Rubiales)."

"Wearing the Spanish National Team shirt is one of the greatest things that has happened to me in my career. I don't know if at some point I will be an option again, but I have made the decision not to return to the National Team until things change and this type of act does not go unpunished."

He signed off with the post: "For a fairer, more humane and decent football." Former Arsenal player Hector Bellerin, who is now part of the Betis team along with Iglesias, also criticized Rubiales for not resigning.

Bellerin has said: "What is happening is truly shameful. From representing our country with that level of vulgarity, misrepresenting the victim's statements and, on top of that, having the audacity to blame her, going on to victimise her for having committed an abuse, are facts that no one would do."

"How can this go unpunished? Football is a social tool to make advancements and progress, machismo should have no place within this system. The narcissist never believes he has made a mistake, he is capable of lying, manipulating the truth and making the victim guilty in order to maintain his power above others."
