Spanish football headlines: Toni Kroos hits out at Qatar, Pique returns to Barcelona training and Real Madrid’s de facto swap with Bayern Munich

Spanish football morning headlines for 31 March.

Kroos highlights Qatar

Real Madrid midfield star Toni Kroos has spoken out against working conditions in Qatar and believes it is deserving of more attention.

The Germany international was not involved during this international break but his national teammates have raised awareness via pre-match t-shirts highlighting human rights issues.

“Immigrant workers are subjected to days without rest with the temperature under a torrid 50 degrees, they suffer from insufficient nutrition, without drinking water and at crazy temperatures,” said Kroos, as per Cadena Cope.

“All of these are absolutely unacceptable point. Would a boycott serve to improve working conditions? I think not.

“Football always arouses extreme attention. Be it before the tournament or during it.”

Pique returns to Barca training

Gerard Pique has returned to Barcelona training following injury, as reported by El Mundo Deportivo.

The goal was always for Pique to return for first-team selection following on from the international break and he is on course to complete this goal following his return to training.

Madrid-Bayern swap

There is Real Madrid transfer news reported by Marca over a de facto swap deal this summer between the club and Bayern Munich.
