"If it does then it will cause massive disruption, not just to the football leagues but also to the other sports which come to their peaks at the winter.
"I think it's going to be a very costly and difficult move to organize but if it's in Qatar, it's going to be in the winter.
"Even if you could cool the players, and I'm not 100% sure of that, I wouldn't want to be a fan in the fan park in those temperatures.
"Anybody who tells me they can cool the fan park in Qatar, which is a country I know quite well from my days in the foreign office, I'll tell them they're deluded."
Harold Mayne-Nicholls, who led the FIFA inspection team examining the bidding countries for the 2022 World Cup, delivered his report in October 2010.
He concluded that Qatar was a high-risk option because of its soaring temperatures -- but it was still chosen by 14 of the 22 executive committee members in the final round of voting in December that year.
Two ExCo members were suspended before the vote after allegations of bribery from a British newspaper, and the following year Triesman told a UK parliament committee that four FIFA officials had asked for certain favors in exchange for their votes.
"In June and July you cannot play," Mayne-Nicholls told CNN Wednesday, when asked about the conditions in Qatar.
"It's not for the players. The players will be OK with the cooling system but what about the fans?
"You'll have 50,000 fans walking three, four, even six blocks or more like in South Africa where I walked 10 blocks.
"They will be walking in 40 degrees and it's too much. One or two crucial cases will damage the entire image of the World Cup and we must be careful."
Triesman was forced to stand down from his role as chairman at the FA after a case which he labeled as "entrapment" led to a newspaper article suggesting he said Spain could drop its bid if rival bidder Russia helped bribe referees at the 2010 World Cup.
He rebutted the claim and issued a strongly-worded statement denying the allegations.
Triesman admitted that the FA and FIFA have endured a difficult relationship over the years.
That relationship soured once more in 2011 when Triesman's successor, David Bernstein, called for the 208 FIFA nations not to re-elect Blatter unopposed -- a move which failed dismally.
At the time FIFA's senior vice-president Julio Grondona hit out at the FA, claiming: "England is always complaining.
"We always have attacks from England which are mostly lies with the support of journalism which is more busy lying than telling the truth. This upsets and disturbs the FIFA family.
"To present such a project as David Bernstein presented is like shooting a penalty because it cannot be always from the same place that the insults and problems come from.
"I see it at every congress. They have specific privileges with four countries having one vice-president. I don't know what our president has said.
"But we have seen the World Cup go around the world, to South America and Africa, and it looks like this country does not like it.
"It looks like England is always complaining so please I say will you leave the FIFA family alone, and when you speak, speak with truth."
No love lost
While Triesman hopes that the relationship between the two bodies has improved in the past year or two, he says there is not much love lost when it comes to his former employers and Blatter.
"My experience is that FIFA does not like the FA," he added.
