UEFA fined the Spanish FA after Spain fans racially abused Mario Balotelli during Euro 2012, while last year Barcelona's Dani Alves said racism in the Spanish game is 'uncontrollable'.
Villa Llona insisted racism was not a problem, The Daily Mail reports.
Asked how racism in Spanish football compared to the game in England, which has had two high-profile abuses cases in the last year, Villa Llona said: "There is no racism in Spanish football."
In June, UEFA fined the Spanish FA 20,000 euros for racist abuse by their fans during Euro 2012.
