FIFA president says Europe has no moral lesson to teach Quata
By Segun Ahmed
The FIFA President, Gianni Infantino has asked Europeans to start apologising for the next 3000 years for the crimes committed against less developed countries.
He gave the scathing remarks while speaking on Europeans’ criticisms of Qatar preparations for the world Cup.

He said European people or companies who condemn Qatar over moral issues are hypocrites.
He said “We are told to make many lessons from some Europeans, from the western world. I’m European. I think for what we Europeans have been doing for 3,000 years around the world, we should be apologizing for the next 3,000 years before starting to give moral lessons to people.”
He said further “How many of these European companies who earn millions and millions from Qatar or other countries in the region—billions every year—how many of them have addressed migrant-worker rights? I have the answer: none of them because if they change the legislation it means less profits. But we did. And FIFA generated much, much, much less than any of these companies, from Qatar.
He said further “We see here as well many government representatives coming from Qatar. I don’t have to defend Qatar in any way whatsoever, they can defend themselves. I am defending football here, and injustice. If there was no gas, nobody would care. But now they all come and they all want something. Who is actually caring about the workers? FIFA does. Football does, the World Cup does and to be fair to them, Qatar does as well.”
