That Jack Warner, the organisation’s former vice-president, who had responsibility for deciding the destination of the 2022 World Cup, appears to have been paid $1.2 million (£720,000) by a Qatari company involved in the bidding process hardly counts as the most earth-shattering revelation. It is news that has dispirited and angered in equal measure. But surprised? Not a chance.
