Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness slams FIFA over World Cup decision

Posted on January 27, 2010. Filed under: Sports | Tags: , , , |

Uli HoeneßGerman newspaper “Bild” is today reporting that Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness has criticised FIFA’s decision to award the hosting of the World Cup to South Africa and that he said he will not be going because of safety fears.

The FIFA World Cup will be held in the Republic, and on African soil, for the first time from June 11.

But Bayern president Hoeness told the newspaper: “I will not travel to South Africa.

“I was never a fan of the World Cup being held in South Africa, or anywhere on the African continent, as long as safety aspects are not clarified 100 per cent.”

Hoeness did not say which “safety aspects” he was concerned about, but firmly blamed FIFA: “Sepp Blatter had to have it his way, but I have always thought it was wrong.

“Now it makes no sense to moan about it anymore, we simply have to try and make the best of it.”
