BBC Sport - Greg Dyke: Fifa 'must investigate' Qatar bribery claims
Fifa 'must investigate' Qatar claims
- From the section Football
The Sunday Times has published evidence of bribery and corruption over Fifa's decision that Qatar should host the 2022 World Cup.
Greg Dyke, the chairman of the Football Association, told Today presenter John Humphrys, "I thought the piece was remarkable, it clearly has to be investigated as a matter of urgency by Fifa and if it is shown that the process was corrupted there needs to be a whole discussion of whether you allow Qatar to hold the tournament."
He added, "It always seemed a strange decision to give the World Cup to a country where it's so hot in the summer you can't possibly play."
First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 2 June.
