The corruption scandal surrounding Fifa and the 2022 Qatar World Cup is a sensitive subject in football at the moment, especially, it seems, for Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Football's governing body has been rocked by the indictment of 14 individuals, including nine past and present Fifa officials, on charges of racketeering conspiracy and corruption, leading to president Sepp Blatter's imminent stepping down from the organisation.
And the Real Madrid talisman became extremely agitated and began to swear when he was asked about the subject in an interview, eventually storming out of it.

"I don't care about Fifa and Qatar!" he told CNN when the subject arose. "I don't give a f***! Speaking about Fifa, come on."

The FBI are continuing to investigate Fifa and the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Russia and Qatar, respectively, amid claims that officials took bribes in exchange for their votes.
