Romario hoisted the World Cup for Brazil in 1994 and was a star for Barcelona. 

But the now-congressman of Rio de Janeiro has been vehemently against this summer's World Cup in Brazil. The country, which is suffering and in desperate need of improvements to the country's infrastructure, is pouring resources into the tournament while FIFA will walk with massive profits.

Romario joined the majority with some not-so-nice things to say about both FIFA president Sepp Blatter and general secretary Jerome Valcke (via, h/t Dirty Tackle). 

For the history of this guy [Valcke], he is one of the biggest racketeers in world sport. He did blackmail with FIFA's president [Blatter], who is a thief, corrupt and a son of a b*tch. Sorry for that expression but this is what we coexist with.
