Premier League tell Platini to forget about winter World Cup for 2022

The Premier League will reject any plans from FIFA to stage the 2022 Qatar World Cup during the winter months.

The Daily Mail says Michel Platini once again insisted that the tournament should be held between "November 20 and December 20" to avoid the scorching summer temperatures in Qatar.

In Monaco, the UEFA president also said he would vote for Qatar again and repeated his desire to see Euro 2020 held across 13 nations with the semi-finals and the final held in one country.

But a Premier League spokesman said: "Our view is that such a proposal is unworkable and unacceptable to domestic European football."
