Theo Zwanziger says Qatar should be ripped off his Rights

FIFA awarded Qatar the rights to host this World Cup despite being aware of the extreme climates in the region.

It was only after awarding the tournament that Fifa realised the problems that would hamper normal World Cup schedule. The extreme heat during the months of June and July mean that it is almost impossible for Qatar to host the World Cup without making substantial changes to its infrastructure.
