  2. It’s a shame and a disgrace that these problems in Qatar is happening. Forget about FIFA taking a bribe from that country and forcing a Winter World Cup, but these working conditions and how these guest workers are being subjected to.

    From Grant Wahl in Sports Illustrated

    “World Cup ’22 in Qatar is in the news again this week with the possibility that FIFA could vote to move the tournament from the summer to the winter months as early as Thursday. Horrible treatment of migrant workers in Qatar has been an ongoing story on CNN.com and in The Guardian, and so has treatment of workers in general.

    I spoke yesterday to Stéphane Morello, a French soccer coach who has been trapped in Qatar since 2009. He coached two Qatari clubs starting in 2007, and his sponsor was the Qatari Olympic Committee. He tells me when those club jobs ended, he was unable to get an exit visa and his guaranteed salary as part of his contract. He has been in limbo with his family ever since, and only in the next few weeks might he finally be able to leave Qatar now that French president François Hollande has gotten involved. Morello tells me he plans to sue the Qataris once he gets back to France for taking nearly five years of his life away. I’ll have more on this story on SI.com this week.”
