Ousted Spanish soccer president responds to World Cup kiss backlash, says it was not ‘sexual’

Former Spanish soccer president Luis Rubiales sat down for an exclusive interview with “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on Fox Nation following his announcement he was resigning after he kissed a female player on the lips after Spain’s World Cup title.

Morgan asked Rubiales if he accepted the argument that his behavior was “macho.”

“No, my behavior was inappropriate, but no sexual content,” he said, adding that he celebrated in similar fashion when he was a player.
