Uefa president Michel Platini has called for a re-vote on the staging of the 2022 World Cup if allegations of corruption against Qatar are proven.
The Qatar bid is under investigation after a report in the UK’s Sunday Times newspaper alleged football officials accepted bribes.
European governing body chief Platini voted for Qatar but told L’Equipe: “I do not regret anything. I think it was the right choice for Fifa and football.”
The Qatar 2022 Bid Committee has denied “all allegations of wrongdoing”.
“If corruption is proven, it will take a new vote and sanctions,” Platini said.
