St. Lineker has been busted. The man who chopped off the opening ceremony of the competition for viewers, and gave them a Mother knows’ best speech:
‘From accusations of corruption in the bidding process to the treatment of migrant workers who’ve built the stadiums where many lost their lives. Homosexuality is illegal here and women’s rights are also in the spotlight. Stick to football, say Fifa. Well, we will – for a couple of minutes at least.’
It now emerges that the patron saint was on £400k a year for a period of 4 years when he was working for Al Jazeera, which is owned by the Qatari state.
Mail Online says that Linker’s coverage of the opening game had received 1,435 complaints.
