Lahm Plans To Boycott Qatar 2022 World Cup

Lahm Plans To Boycott Qatar 2022 World Cup

Former Germany and Bayern Munich skipper Philipp Lahm has revealed he plans to boycott the World Cup later this year due to Qatar’s human rights record.

Lahm led Germany to the World Cup title after they beat Argentina in the final of the 2014 tournament. And he’s now working as the German FA’s tournament director for Euro 2024.

But despite that, the 38-year-old said he won’t be attending the next major tournament.

“I’m not part of the delegation and I’m not keen on flying there as a fan,” Lahm told German publication Kicker.

“I prefer to follow the tournament from home. If I If I had a job or an agenda in Qatar in my capacity as Euro tournament director, it would of course look different.”

Lahm believes Qatar should never have been given the responsibility and has called for a change in how a host nation is picked.

“Human rights should play the biggest role in the awarding of a tournament,” he continued.

“If a country is awarded the contract that is one of the worst performers in this regard, you start to think about the criteria used to make the decision.

“That shouldn’t happen again in the future. Human rights, sustainability, the size of the country – none of that seems to have played a role.”

    The human thing this guy is talking about is LGBT stuff. You can’t just force people into your culture or into a system they are totally alien to. Your presence in Quatar is totally useless. So stay off
