“We have one city which I will not name where there are 17,000 rooms and 45,000 seats in the stadium, so the only other solution would be to have three people in one bed, but we have now moved from talking about the problems to talking about the solutions. We are able to find and answer the problems,” he said.
Valcke caused an outcry in Brazil earlier this year when he criticized the slow pace of preparations and said the country needed “a kick up the backside.”
He later apologized and the two sides have ironed out their differences.
“It is a question of maturity, age, understanding,” Valcke said. “We found a way to work together and that is the most important thing. We are not trying any more to fight, it is pointless. A couple can get a divorce, but in a World Cup partnership you cannot divorce. Sometimes you lose control, and you say things and get nervous, and then you learn that patience is a good thing to have. At the moment, we are working well.”
