According to the Daily Mail, Lionel Messi and his Argentina teammates have forgone five-star luxury for student accommodation for the upcoming Qatar World Cup. The change comes to help La Albiceleste enjoy traditional beef grills that the 5-star facilities do not offer.

Messi and Co arrived in Doha on Thursday and went straight to the student halls of Qatar University. Accommodation is modest at best, with bunk beds, a lackluster gym and minimal amenities. However, the facility allows the team to enjoy and organize the mouth watering asadostraditional barbecue dishes that are one of the country’s culinary delights.

A special area has been built on the expansive campus for Messi and Co, which will allow them to prepare beef teak and sausages, which will be cooked in the traditional Argentinian way. The preparation sees it prepared with a light coating of coarse salt, accompanied by salad and wine. However, the latter will likely be under the control of the support staff.

The beef from Argentina is considered to be among the finest in the world, and it was specially flown from the South American country to Qatar for Lionel Messi and his team. A special asado chef will also be on hand to ensure it is prepared as it would be in Argentina.

A source from the Argentine FA told MailOnline: “We visited the campus several times and chose it because it has fantastic facilities and open-air spaces for asados. This is very important for the players and Argentines in general, it is part of our culture. We want to make them feel at home while they are in Qatar and the best way to do this is to make sure they get a taste of home while they focus on football.”

He added: ‘You could say that other teams have chosen to live in more luxurious accommodation, but our team is the best in the world, which also deserves the best beef. Our focus is on winning the World Cup, not the quality of the hotel we stay at.’

The part of the Qatar University campus that houses the Argentine team consists of 90 rooms and has state-of-the-art sports facilities, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and its own 10,000-capacity football stadium.
