US and not Qatar should host the 2022 World Cup Blatter said

The US or Germany should host the 2022 World Cup, rather than Qatar. At least, that is what Sepp Blatter thinks as a former FIFA chairman. At the time, the tournament was assigned to the oil state under his leadership.

10 years after awarding the World Championship to Qatar, Blatter admits that the allocation process was not fair. In 2010, Qatar won the vote and became the host country for the tournament, with the 84-year-old himself at the helm.

FIFA and Blatter suspected of bribery

His statements in a German newspaper are very strange, since he has denied for years bribery. In 2015, 5 years after being assigned to Qatar, Blatter had to resign from FIFA due to suspicions of corruption. This was recently confirmed by the American justice system.

FIFA pressured by France

Now the former chairman says that the US, Germany or Japan would be a better organizer, but that the World Cup has been sealed to Qatar through political intervention. France and President Nicolas Sarkozy are said to have put pressure on the World Football Association.
