Pique asked Rubiales that Andorra not be framed with the teams from Catalonia because “those in group 4 are the highest level.”


The situation

Gerard Pique contacted Luis Rubiales to find out how he could take over the vacant place left by Reus in Segunda B in 2019 , according to El Confidencial . He finally got hold of it and was framed by geographical distribution in the Catalan group. The following year, with the pandemic and the remodeling of non-professional football, the Barcelona player contacted the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation again to suggest the group that Andorra should go to . It should be remembered that COVID-19 and the changes in the category caused Second B to be divided into ten subgroups of ten, which were later mixed again in a promotion, intermediate and relegation phase. Each of these subgroups was formed by geographical distribution, although some Autonomous Communities had more than ten teams and had to be arranged in a different way . That’s when Pique came in and called Rubiales to propose an easier group for his Andorra : “How are you, Rubi? I hope all is well, although I imagine that you are involved with all this COVID. I have seen that a match has been postponed for moving up from Third to Second B. All this is a drama and it looks like we are going to be around for a while until it disappears. I just wanted to ask you if you already have an idea of ​​how the teams are going to be distributed in the different groups of Second B for the next year and if you already knew where Andorra will be placed”.


Rubiales responds in ‘Everything is a Lie’

The president of the RFEF has already responded to the controversy of Andorra in the Cuatro program ‘Todo es Mentira’: ” All the clubs ask to have simpler groups. It is one more call. What you have to see is how the groups and where Andorra competed was very difficult . If they call it is because they pick up the phone. We are close people and football people. In the end, the FEF makes decisions”.
