The RFEF president spoke about this week's leaked audios and the Supercopa scandal

RFEF chief Luis Rubiales has defended himself following leaked audios between him and Gerard Pique relating to moving the Spanish Supercopa to Saudi Arabia.

He has been accused of malpractice in the relationship between the RFEF, Kosmos and Saudi Arabia, but says everything is above board, transparent and clean.

With regards to the involvement of Pique's company Kosmos, he says there is no direct relationship with the RFEF, with Saudi Arabia paying Kosmos their commission.

"Understand that the RFEF don't pay Kosmos anything, who pays Kosmos is Saudi Arabia," he said. "It's another lie. Spain is among the 15 biggest exporters in Saudi Arabia.

"Inditex, Renfe... but football no? We have worked hard and honestly. The money goes to more modest clubs, to women's football. We're the Federation that does most for modest football. It will continue to be the base of our management."

He stressed: "The financial relationship is with Arabia and Kosmos, there is no conflict of competition. And if they say that from our ethics commission and having passed through three filters, then there is no conflict."
