“Spoilt brat” Infantino started by claiming: “Today I feel Qatari. Today I feel Arab. Today I feel African. Today I feel gay. Today I feel disabled. Today I feel a migrant worker.

“Of course I am not Qatari, Arab, gay or disabled.

“But I was the son of a migrant worker, saw their conditions. Not in Qatar, but Switzerland.

“As a child I was bullied because I had red hair and freckles. Plus I was Italian and didn’t speak German.

“What do you do? You look down, go to your room and cry and then you try to make some friends, to speak and engage and get these friends to engage with others.”

One of Infantino’s fierce critics has been Manchester United legend Neville, who blasted the Swiss footie chief on beIN Sports for his “inappropriate” comments.

Neville said: “He’s a terrible face for football.

“Some of the things he said yesterday were inappropriate and shouldn’t be said by him.

“He should be bringing people together. He’s the global representative of football.

“He shouldn’t be answering to one or two nations, which is what he seemed to be doing yesterday. He’s got to rise above it. 

“Some of his language yesterday was an absolute scandal. He shouldn’t be using that kind of language. He shouldn’t be using those phrases.”

Neville went on to group Infantino with world leaders who “divide” not unite.

The former England right-back continued: “I’m sick of these leaders, like (Boris) Johnson, like (Donald) Trump, like Infantino, like (Sepp) Blatter who don’t unite, they divide. 

“All their language is about division. Even though they try and think they’re bringing people together they’re not.”
