Wads of ’em!” – Gary Lineker Ball Banter May 17, 2014 Quote of The Week Gary Lineker took to Twitter to show both his annoyance and amusement at the way FIFA awarded Qatar the 2022 World Cup. This was in response to Sepp Blatter’s comments about them making a mistake in choosing Qatar. This is what Lineker had to say: “Blatter admits it was a mistake to award WC to Qatar in ’22 as it’s too hot in summer. You have one decision to make every 4 years! HELP!! Blatter ‘everyone makes mistakes.’ Pretty big one. He’s the man in charge. I imagine his resignation letter is being composed as we tweet!!! Imagine the shock at FIFA HQ when, 2 years after the vote, someone spotted that Qatar’s a tad warm in summer. If we didn’t know better we could be forgiven for thinking there were ulterior motives to awarding Qatar the WC. Wads of ’em!” I don’t think he’s the only one who’ll be questioning the motive behind FIFA voting for Qatar, or at least it’s individual members. He also won’t be the only one calling for Blatter to (finally) resign. You know what they say… ‘Good riddance to bad rubbish’! Well, that’s the dream anyway.
