Earlier this month, Spanish Football Federation president Angel Maria Villar and his son were arrested following a corruption investigation. Although he denied these allegations, he was suspended for one year by the Federation. It is reported that he has now resigned from his roles as vice-president of Uefa and Fifa.
Uefa said: “Villar will no longer have any official functions at our organisation.
“In view of the ongoing court proceedings in Spain, we have no further comments to make on this matter.”
According to AFP, the Spanish federation's financial vice-president Juan Padron and Ramon Hernandez Baussou, general secretary of the Tenerife federation were included in the arrest.
They face charges including falsifying documents, misappropriation of funds, collusion and administrative breaches linked to skimming profits from international friendly games, AFP adds.
The 67-year-old Villar, former Athletic Bilbao and Spain midfielder, has been the head of the Spanish federation for nearly thirty years. BBC Sport reports that Juan Luis Larrea has been named as interim president.
