Tottenham boss Antonio Conte makes FIFA demand over future World Cups


    Antonio Conte has demanded that Qatar 2022 be the end of winter World Cups. The Tottenham manager says football should have vetoed the idea years ago but now that the full enormity of breaking a season for a major tournament is upon us, he feels a lesson needs to be learned.

    Even if the World Cup itself turns out to be a success.

    “After this experience, even if it should be good, then we say we did it once, now let’s continue to do it like we did in the past,” Conte said. “Fingers crossed there will be no injuries and then we will see what happens.

    “But what we did in the past was perfect for everybody.”

    Conte has seen both sides of the equation having played for Italy throughout the end of the last century and then coached them at Euro 2016.

    “I was a player at the World Cup and I played in a European Championships and to repeat again – this situation, I don’t like,” he said. “We have seen so many problematic situations

    “It is too late to complain. For sure in my opinion the whole football environment should have complained at the right time, not now.

    “Maybe because the interest was so big for everybody that nobody wanted to. I didn’t complain because otherwise people say that I complain every time!

    “Now it is too late and we have to live with this experience.

    “There should be no doubt about this: okay, we have the World Cup now.

    “But then we stop and go back to playing it in the summer.”
