IThe Government restructuring carried out by Pedro Sánchez It will not affect the sporting field to a large extent, beyond the change of ministry -from Culture to Education-since the key figure represented by the president of the Superior Sports Council (CSD) will continue to be Victor Francoexcept unexpected twists.
The Catalan lawyer has been in office for less than six months – since June 16th – but his work has not gone unnoticed by Pedro Sánchez and his most faithful advisors, who are more than satisfied with his work.
Francs, from 44 years old, José Manuel Franco replaced the positionwho ran as a Senate candidate for the PSOE, becoming the fourth president of the CSD during the Government of Pedro Sánchez.
Until then he served as Secretary General of Culture and Sports – a position he held for two years – and He was one of Miquel Iceta’s trusted menwhose departure from Culture did not diminish his credit.
Since his arrival as President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez has had Mara José Rienda (2018-2020), Irene Lozano (2020-2021) and José Manuel Franco (2021-2023) as presidents of the CSD before appointing Franco.
In these few months, Franco had above all to deal with the thorny issue of Luis Rubiales’ kiss with Jennifer Hermosodemonstrating their unequivocal support for the player and demanding renewal at the top of the Spanish Football Federation by holding elections for the federative body.
Despite this, its biggest and immediate challenge is lead Spanish sport to success at the Paris 2024 Gamesin which our country aspires to surpass the limit of 22 medals won in Barcelona 1992.
