In an odd speech, FIFA President claims, “I feel African, gay, disabled, and migrant worker.”

Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, has come under fire for his shocking speech in which he stated, “I feel African, gay, disabled, and migrant worker.”

In a press conference on the eve of the World Cup, the head of the organization that governs the sport retaliated against criticism of Qatar from European countries. In the run-up to the tournament, both the occasion and FIFA have come under fire for choosing to hold it in Qatar, where the rights of migrant workers and LGBTQ+ people have taken precedence over football.

Additionally, Infantino delivered a remarkable monologue in Doha during which he passionately defended Qatar and the competition for nearly an hour.

“Today I have very strong feelings,” he said in the opening of his press conference speech. I feel Qatari today. I feel Arab today. My current mood is African. I feel gay today. I feel unable today. I feel like a migrant worker right now.

“Europeans have taught us a great deal of lessons. I’m from Europe. Before imparting moral lessons to people, I believe that what Europeans have been doing around the world for the past 3,000 years deserves an apology for the following 3,000 years.
