UAE chief calls Platini idea 'crazy'

United Arab Emirates FA chief and vice-president of the Asian Football Confederation, Yousuf Al Serkal, has slammed UEFA president Michel Platini's idea that Qatar share the 2022 World Cup hosting rights.

Platini insisted once again last weekend that it would be beneficial for the Middle East nations to share the job of hosting the world's most prestigious football tournament, and also that they should consider moving the date until the end of the year to avoid the scorching summer temperatures.

However Al Serkal, who will be running for presidency of the Asian Football Confederation at their May elections, dismissed Platini's idea out of hand.

"It is a crazy idea," Al Serkal told Reuters. "First of all this cannot happen. The FIFA executive committee has already taken a decision and awarded the 2022 World Cup to the Qataris.

"We support Qatar to host the World Cup independently and we are not interested in any sharing. On the contrary, we have put ourselves at the disposal of the Qataris for any support they might require, be it logistically or whatever."

Al Serkal is also opposed to Platini's hatred of goal-line technology and has thrown his weight behind the introduction of the plans.

"I think it is a good idea. I had attended a FA board meeting in England and FIFA had explained the whole idea behind the technology and I am definitely a supporter," he said. "It's a good thing."
