Liverpool have rejected the allocated hotel for them to stay in during the Club World Cup in Qatar in December because of concerns over human rights breaches, according to the Daily Mail.
After doing background research on the location, the Marsa Malaz Kempinski hotel, the Reds found that it has a murky past, including security guards being made to work for 12 hours straight in 45 degrees Celcius, and staff being paid less than minimum wage.
Qatar is currently preparing to host the World Cup in 2022, when these problems will be all the more prevalent.
There have been reports of slave labour being used to build the stadia required for that tournament, while there are questions remaining over why it was selected in the first place.
The Reds will play their semi-final of the Club World Cup on December 18 with a potential final three days later.
The club should be praised for doing their research and making the decision, but questions remain over whether they should have boycotted the tournament completely.
Earlier today, CEO Peter Moore spoke to LiverpoolFC.com about the issues of LGBT+ rights in Qatar, with concerns over that too among travelling fans.
