Speaking in an interview with Swiss news outlet RTS, Sepp Blatter was asked if he thought handing the 2022 World Cup duties to Qatar was an error because of the Gulf atoll’s blistering 50ºc summer temperatures
Blatter replied: “Yes, of course. You know, everyone makes mistakes in life.”
“The technical report indicated clearly that it was too hot in summer,” he continued.
“But despite that, the executive committee decided with quite a big majority that the tournament would be in Qatar.”

Leave your possibly libellous remarks after the tone…
