Boycott? renouncing consumption?

Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic says 20 minutes into the media round that he feels “0.0 expectations”. On the one hand, it’s a bad season for such a tournament. On the other hand: “At the venue, the biggest problem is the lack of women’s and human rights.” Then the Barcelona star talks about ZDF’s interview with World Cup ambassador Khalid Salman in which he talks about being gay as “mental damage” designated. “It’s outrageous,” says Crnogorcevic, who wonders, “Are we still living in the Middle Ages?”
