Former Lazio and Inter striker Keita Balde had to fight in order to find a hotel willing to host 200 seasonal workers in Spain, even when he paid for their food and lodgings.
The forward is currently playing for Monaco and expressed his frustration that the Senegalese workers were forced to sleep in the streets on cardboard.
Despite offering to pay for their food and lodgings, he still couldn’t find a hotel in Lleida prepared to open their doors, with 13 turning them away.
