a World Cup “should be done in a better way”, criticizes Bruno Fernandes

Six days before the start of the World Cup (November 20-December 18), the Portuguese openly criticized the host country, Qatar and the competition.

The day after Manchester United’s victory at Fulham in the Premier League (2-1)Bruno Fernandes expressed his reservations about this World Cup in Qatar.

“NOTWe have seen what has happened over the last few weeks and months and the people who have died during the construction of the stadiums. We’re not happy about that, Bruno Fernandes told Sky Sports. We want football to be for everyone and for everyone to be included and involved in the World Cup. It’s the World Cup, it’s for everyone. I don’t think that kind of thing should ever happen. But a World Cup is more than football, it’s a celebration for fans and players, and a joy to watch. It should be done in a better way.»

Not the only one to criticize this World Cup

Other football personalities have also questioned this World Cup and especially its attribution. This is the case of Christian Eriksen, who still prefers to see the sporting aspect. “I worked hard for the World Cup and I’m looking forward to it. We talked about it a lot. No matter where it takes place, it’s football. We qualified, and we’re just going to play football. I agree with Bruno. There’s a lot of focus on how the World Cup went and why it’s happening in Qatar. We are footballers, politics is something above us to make this decision. We try to say what we have to say and do what we can. We want to focus on this subject but the change must come from elsewhere.”

Philipp Lahm, captain of the 2014 world champion Germany team and director of Euro-2024, also felt on Sunday that Qatar should not have been awarded the 2022 World Cup.Awarding the World Cup to Qatar was a mistake“, he explained.
