Three and a half years after having assigned them the competition, Sepp Blatter believes that entrusting the organization of the World Cup 2022 to Qatar had been a “mistake”. The FIFA president accuses France of being behind.
The French Minister of Women’s Right, the City, Youth and Sports, Najat Belkacem-Vallaud protests.
“Contrary to the allegations of Mr. Blatter, I think it is the business of FIFA to know to whom to entrust a World Cup organization. I do not have to be judgmental because I think it is the FIFA, there was a vote in it. It is not necessary that people discharge their responsibilities,“ she reacted on RMC. Mr. Blatter had already his responsibilities when it was decided to award the World Cup to Qatar.”
