“It shouldn’t be here” – Keane slams decision to award World Cup to Qatar

Roy Keane says the World Cup should not be in Qatar.

The Mayfield man is currently working at the tournament for ITV.

Speaking on the station’s pre match coverage of Argentina and Saudi Arabia this morning, the former Manchester United skipper slammed the decision to award the tournament to Qatar because of the country’s treatment of migrant workers and the LGBTQ community.

“The World Cup shouldn’t be here” Keane said on this morning’s coverage. “It shouldn’t be here. It’s been mentioned about corruption regarding FIFA, the country the way way they treat migrant workers, gay people.

“I think it’s great that it’s been brought up. They shouldn’t have the World Cup here.

“You can’t treat people like that. We all love football, we all love soccer and we’re on about spreading the game but just to dismiss human rights, forgetting it because there’s a football tournament isn’t right, it shouldn’t be here.”
