Gianni Infantino is not only being criticized for defending the Qatar World Cup.
A commentator now said clearly and live on TV what he thinks of the FIFA President.
Doha – Gianni Infantino has not only been criticized for his hour-long justification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Since his election as FIFA President in 2016, the Swiss has been accused of misconduct within the association.
Infantino's defense of the World Cup in an absurd speech only shows how unrealistic FIFA is.

While Straßburger was evaluating the South Americans' performance ("You see that more often with the Ecuadorians, with everything that's going well, that they have it under control here in the ring at the Khalifa International Stadium"), Infantino was shown sitting in the stands .
As reported by tz.de, there was a short break, then Straßburger said: "The difference in the World Cup games: Unlike in the circus, the clowns sit in the stands." (Teams at the 2022 World Cup)

It will be interesting to see what consequences Straßburger's statement will have. ZDF expert Sandro Wagner was accused of racism for his controversial statement against Qatar.
In any case, Straßburger received a lot of encouragement online for his attack on Infantino.
