Speaking to Sky Sports, Al Khater fumed: “No country is perfect, so if somebody is coming and claiming they are a perfect country then they need to really take a look at themselves.
“Is he basing his opinions and public statements on what he’s read? Because it’s an issue when you just base an opinion that you’re very vocal about on things you have read.
“Somebody with a lot of influence such as Southgate, somebody with a big audience that listens to what he says, has got to pick his words very carefully before making statements like that.
“Has he been to Qatar? Who from England has been here? I look forward to welcoming him here, I look forward to meeting him at Friday’s draw.
