Full statement:

Considering the news published about Rayo Vallecano Femenino (hereinafter RVF) in recent days and the statements made about it, many of them uncertain, Rayo Vallecano (hereinafter RVM) makes its position public:

1. RVM’s employment relationship with the RVF players began yesterday, August 20, 2021, after holding and concluding the corresponding negotiations.

2. All the players who began their employment relationship yesterday have been registered in the Social Security system since yesterday, as it cannot be otherwise.

3. The RVM affirms that all its personnel, regardless of their gender, with whom they have an employment relationship, have a legal employment contract and are registered in the Social Security system.

4. The undesirable controversy, spread these days, has occurred due to the declared will of the RVM not to yield to any type of pressure, wherever it comes from, to enter into contracts, which they wanted to impose on the current governing body of the RVM without negotiation, which supposed, with respect to the previous season, some increases in the average of remunerations above 35%, while all the income from television, as well as from sponsors, as well as from contributions from the different organizations have seen drastically reduced for this season that is about to begin due to the lack of professionalization of the Women’s League, and all this despite the announcement on March 25, made by the former president of CSD, that for this season the Women’s First Division would be professional .

5. For these reasons and due to the emergency of the situation, the RVM has carried out the negotiation and conclusion of the contracts using its own funds so as not to diminish the expectations generated in several players due to the drastic lack of income generated by the incomprehensible situation that the professional league is not yet approved.

6. Faced with the false insinuations about what happened last season in the women’s team, the RVM wants to recall that the reason why the players started later than the rest of the teams was due to an exercise of responsibility for the protection of the health of our players and therefore of their cohabitants and the rest of the population, of not allowing the preseason to start until there was no sanitary protocol to start safely. This protocol was the “Protocol of action for the return of the official competitions of state scope and non-professional nature of 2020/2021”. Unfortunately, the evolution of the pandemic gave us the reason, although we would not have liked it, not to start despite being the only club that adopted that prudence.

7. The RVM has never practiced discriminatory treatment with the RVF players.

8. The RVM wants to indicate that we are facing the overcoming of a devastating pandemic in the face of which it is adopting necessary measures, although many times uncomfortable. Despite this, the RVM affirms that the women’s team has the same means and identical treatment as their male teammates who are under the same protocol of action for the return of sports competitions.

9. The RVM wants to state, in the face of the different insinuations that have occurred, that its intention has been to try to adjust the income and expenses budget of the women’s football division so that it is sustainable and not sustained. This position is not the result of a whim but an exercise of responsibility, of which the current governing body of the RVM is very neat because this same governing body has had to rescue Rayo from a situation of complete insolvency with a debt of more than 60 million euros to turn the RVM today into an example of corporate reorganization, budget control and doing things well.

10. The RVM begs the AFE not to be carried away by the declared enmity that its president David Aganzo has with the RVM due to the dismissal that the latter carried out in his day. Abstention, in matters in which an Entity with whom the President of AFE has a declared enmity is a party, would have been an exercise of transparency, prudence and responsibility that, here, has attracted attention due to its absence.
