Infantino slams “hypocritical” criticism of World Cup hosts Qatar

A day before the opening game, FIFA president Gianni Infantino condemned the “double standards” of Western nations against World Cup hosts Qatar. During a press conference in Al-Rajjan on Saturday, the 52-year-old said: “I think we Europeans should apologize for the next 3,000 years for what we Europeans have done to the world for the last 3,000 years, before we Start giving moral advice to others.” , It is “sad” to experience this “double standard”.

“How many of these Western companies that are here getting billions from Qatar – how many of them have talked about the rights of migrant workers? None of them,’ Infantino said without giving examples. “Who cares for the workers? Does? Who? FIFA does, football does, the World Cup does – and to be honest, so does Qatar.” The FIFA president, who has a second residence in Doha, said he did not understand why the progress in Qatar was not recognised. “This way of wanting to give a one-sided lesson is hypocritical.” (dpa)
