I contact you because I submited again my site and this time got rejected because of the next reason:
"Review complete: Site rejected

We're concerned about accountability on your site. Users tell us they like to know who is writing the content they read, so we look for news sites with author biographies and clearly accessible contact information. .."
An I need some advice here because:
- We have lot of news, only news related to sports, sports reviews, tips, poopilar events, etc..
- The site shows in a very transparent way all the authors, date and cetegory.
- There is a link in the footer linking to all professional team that are writing all content: https://www.apuestas-deportivas.es/noticias/autores.
- We have ass well all the legal information af the company, contact mail, address, pictures, biography of authors users can comment in all post.

To be honest, I don't know the reason. 
Can you maybe provide any input/help/explanation here. It would be appreciated it.
Thank you for your help.

Hi!
 
Google News should consider who is responsible for the content of the website or the content of the page.  Does the person or organization has sufficient expertise in the topic? If expertise, authoritativeness, or trustworthiness is lacking, experts use the Low rating to your site.
 
In each news, you need to specify an author's attribution. The author is always human (an individual reporter), not a company name or website. Create a separate profile page for authors. Specify the author's name, a photo, a biography, his/her office address and phone number, E-mail. Links to the Facebook page, Twitter account etc, in my opinion, are not clearly accessible contact information.
 
On each article (news), you include a byline with the author's full name and an author short bio below with a faceshot. If there is no author bio, thus no indication the author is a professional journalist or an expert in the field. Readers should obtain evidence that your site is trustworthy and your Team really exists (that you are not fake persons).
 
On page About (Contact), you need to specify company name, office address, office phone number, office E-mail, business time, editor’s name.
 
The author's attribution checklist.
  • author's full name - Yes/No
  • author's short bio - Yes/No
  • author's photo  - Yes/No
  • his/her office address - Yes/No
  • his/her office phone number - Yes/No
  • his/her office E-mail - Yes/No

Restrictive clause: 
The Google News guidelines and application thereof have tightened up over time.  Some sites approved in the past when the standards were laxer.  It is also possible and likely that some of them will be eliminated at a future date should they fail to meet the  current standards version.

But we have completed all the checklist from google news:

- The name of the company, the address, is published in the site. Everything is transparent.
- On each article the user can read the name & date & category of the news.
  • author's full name - Yes
  • author's short bio - Yes
  • author's photo  - Yes
  • his/her office address - only for the company- The author is a freelance
  • his/her office phone number - only for the company- The author is a freelance
  • his/her office E-mail -only for the company- The author is a freelance (but it's possible to contact adding comments in all post.)
Can you Viacheslav check our site and maybe provide any input/help/explanation here. It would be appreciated it.

Hi, Oscar!
Lifestyle, events (without  [new component]), prices, stock data, reviews, press releases [mostly press releases about themselves on their own site], blogs, research,  how-to articles, tips, advice columns, announcements, are not news content

Thanks for your answer Viacheslav Varenia
But the site was rejected because of "the accountability" 
"Review complete: Site rejected.
We're concerned about accountability on your site. Users tell us they like to know who is writing the content they read, so we look for news sites with author biographies and clearly accessible contact information. .."

That's why you don't answer my question.
Can you maybe provide any input/help/explanation here. 

Thanks.
