And then, needing only a draw to qualify automatically and looking dangerous with every attack, they got a case of nerves after Serbia equalised with a deflection and let them nick it with a 90th min header. So play-offs for Portugal.Portugal took an almost instant lead against Serbia and the manager totally lost it, got so angry the ref booked him.
Stuffed into a room with six others, with one semi-functional fan, he was shuttled back and forth to the stadium with barely any time to eat or sleep. The heat was constant and pounding. Sometimes, his nose would start bleeding and he would vomit.
“If there was some shade in the stadium we used to try to hide in there but we’d have to come back, we couldn’t stay in there,” Magar said.
Complaints about conditions to his supervisor brought only threats.
“Sometimes I would work until the next morning, and if I said I didn’t want to work, they’d say I would be cut off from my payments,” he said. “The manager used to threaten me if I wouldn’t work long hours, he’d say, ‘I’ll cut your overtime work’, but he never paid me overtime anyway.”
After a year and a half, Magar managed to get home, though he was paid a fraction of the amount written in his contract. But he had lost weight and started vomiting and running fevers regularly.
His family took him to hospital. Tests showed irreparable damage to his kidneys. Dhakal, his doctor, told him he would have to go on dialysis three times a week for the rest of his life. At 23, he was the first member of his family known to have had kidney problems.
Yeah, I thought that was odd too. He came off like an apologist, although someone in the comments pushed back on that suggestion;One that jumped out was this "The massive media outrage surrounding the Qatar World Cup is political and financed by people/organizations who wish harm upon the country." - seems dubious.... or, let's say this, it may well be that Qatar's enemies are spreading the stories but does anyone think that they are not true?
But you don't have to be one of Qatar's enemies to think that there is something a little odd about putting the world's biggest sporting event in a country that has no tradition of playing that sport, which has no stadiums or infrastructure to manage that tournament and which, at the very time the tournament is supposed to take place is literally too hot to play the sport in question... but which DOES have lots and lots of lovely money, enough to shower over absolutely everyone involved in the decision, lubricating any unfortunate sticking points on the way and totally cleaning away any nasty stains.Yeah, I thought that was odd too. He came off like an apologist, although someone in the comments pushed back on that suggestion;
"Is he a Qatar apologist: If you know Molina’s work (he wrote a book on the Qatari takeover of PSG) and has many videos on Qatar on his YouTube channel, you know he is not a Qatar apologist. However, it does seem to me that he has shifted his focus from Qatar to Saudi Arabia when it comes to who is the bigger vilain in terms of human rights abuse. In his 2nd live last night, he said that while in Qatar, he got stranded in the not so glamorous Pakistani neighbourhoods of Qatar and while discussing with the taxi drivers there, he asked them “how can they live like this” and they told him that it’s way better than elsewhere (elsewhere being in the United Arab
f Emirates and Saudi Arabia). When he talks about Qatar having enemies fund anti-WC campaigns, he’s talking about Saudi Arabia (he touched on it in his previous Space months ago and in one of his Youtube videos I think) just like the Saudis were involved with BeOUT and other state sponsored anti-Qatar campaigns."
Maybe Carrick until end of season.I hope nobody decent takes the job. The people running these big clubs into the ground need to squirm a bit and learn from their mistakes when they just fritter money away and act like twats, not get propped up by putting yet another manager through the wringer.
