‘Southgate’ looks at Qatar’s World Cup boycott not helping

Browse By

England manager Gareth Southgate doesn’t think he’ll get anything if they decide to boycott the World Cup in Qatar.

Human rights issues in Qatar become a topic of discussion before the tournament kicks off at the end of the year.

Southgate has discussed the matter with his team this week. But I think that not participating in the tournament will not have much effect.

“I really don’t know what it will help achieve. “It’s going to be big news but the tournament is going as usual,” said Southgate.

“Actually, unfortunately, the biggest problem is what happened with the construction of the stadium, which wasn’t about the court and It’s not cultural, and we can’t do anything about that either, sadly.”

“We have known for 8 years that it will be held in Qatar. Is it a stance against Qatar as a country? 

The consequences of acting on diplomatic ties and dealing with other countries and organizations are very complex.”

“It is possible. But it’s not a decision that the player or me will decide.”

“Whatever we do we will be criticized. We will be traveling to the Qatar lottery and that means more opportunities to meet more people.”

“There will be a lot going on throughout the year. The players themselves began to help in many problems. We have to use our voices in the right way and at the right time.”
