Villar, his son Gorka and two other football federation executives were detained on July 18 on allegations of collusion, embezzlement and falsifying documents. Villar has denied all the allegations. A judge ordered on Thursday that Villar should be remanded in custody. Juan Padron, one of the other executives arrested, was also suspended by the CSD for one year on Tuesday. Villar, who was in his eighth term as RFEF president and was re-elected in May when he stood unopposed, is the latest leading football official to be arrested or banned. Since 2015, several dozen leading officials, mainly from Latin America, have been indicted in the United States on corruption-related charges.
