The unveiling occurred amidst controversy surrounding the World Cup 2022 tournament held in Qatar, which faced criticism for the treatment of migrant workers and the country's stance on LGBTQ+ rights.

Infantino has been accused of accepting money from Qatar authorities to allow them to host the tournament.

Infantino has previously defended Qatar's handling of the World Cup, stating that western countries are hypocrites for accusing Qatar of human rights violations while they have been committing similar actions for centuries.

He praised the tournament, which saw several underdogs defeating favourites, including Morocco's run to the semi-finals. The World Cup had an exciting finish, with Argentina defeating France on penalties, and Lionel Messi lifting the trophy.

Despite Infantino's defense of Qatar, criticism towards him and the country has increased. The controversial statue of the FIFA President only adds to the already heated debate surrounding the tournament and its host nation.
