The Women in Sport Podcast: Juan José Hita Fernández and Starky Mondragón Malca discuss the developing situation with Luis Rubiales

We are delighted to share the fourth episode of our Women in Sport Podcast, where we discuss developments, initiatives, and issues relating to women in sports and the associated legal implications. 

In this episode, Partner Emma Bartlett and Trainee Solicitor Mitchell Blythe are joined by two special guests, Juan José Hita Fernández, Partner at Augusta Abogados and Starky Mondragón Malca, Lawyer at Augusta Abogados and former professional footballer in Spain. In this podcast we discuss the legal developments in the ongoing situation involving Spanish football official Luis Rubiales and Spanish World Cup winning footballer, Jenni Hermoso. In particular: 

  1. The employment and labour status of those involved and the obligations that bind the behaviours of Luis Rubiales toward the Spanish football team. 
  2. The investigations into Luis Rubiales conduct which are being pursued from various angles, including the public prosecutors investigation. 
  3. The public reaction from both female and male professional footballers in Spain.
  4. Whether this could be a catalyst for cultural change in the treatment and respect for women playing professional sport?

You can also listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or SoundCloud.
