FIFA threatens to ban Spain out of 2018 World Cup

The governing body of world football (FIFA) confirmed on Friday that it has written to the Spanish federation (RFEF) warning they could be suspended form the 2018 World Cup because of political interference.

El Pais reports that the world governing body sent the Spanish Football Federation a letter, threatening to ban their national team if they decide to go ahead and elect a new RFEF President.

Juan Larrea has been in charge after Angel Maria Villar stepped down over corruption charges.

Spain could face the same punishment to that of Kuwait, who were charged with the offence of governmental interference with their federation.

They had also faced the same threat back in 2010 with Sepp Blatter in charge, but there was no evidence of any wrongdoing.
