The former football player and congressman Romario (PSB-RJ), a leading critic of the way the World Cup 2014 is being organized, said in his profile on Facebook, that the competition become the “biggest theft in history” of the country, all because of the mismanagement of Brazilian politicians.
“Brazilians, keep charging and manifesting this because it will get worse when we are a year and a half of the tournament. The worst is yet to come, because the government will let the emergency works happen, those that do not require bids. That’s when will happen the biggest robbery in the history of Brazil,” said Romario.
For him, “the government deceives the people,” and President Rousseff “is being cheated or deceived” when she says that the Cup will be the best of all time.
Romario criticized the absence of members of the congress at the meeting between FIFA president Joseph Blatter and Dilma, last Friday (16 of march), when it came to the project of the General Law of the World Cup, which is scheduled to be voted on in Congress still this week.
After the meeting, Blatter revealed that Dilma gave ample and full guarantees that Brazil will respect “all commitments made to FIFA,” including allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages in the stadium, which is one of the points that generates more rejection in Congress, especially the evangelical bench.
The best player of the 1994 World Cup invited the Brazilians to come out and said that the people have every right to demand from politicians more seriously and responsibly on matters relating to the World Cup.
