BBC commentator Bob Ballard, who chaired the event, criticised the FA and Chelsea for allowing the appointment of Phil Scolari as Chelsea manager.
Brazilian Scolari had said that he would never have a gay player on his team, which is against the FA's equal treatment rules.
Accusing the FA of double standards, Ballard said that if Scolari had said he would kick out black or Jewish players he would have never been appointed at Chelsea.

What is it with the older generation of footballer and hot shots? Homophobic, xenophobic and just very much out of touch. Has football ended up in a rough alley where normal people wouldnt go normally???

Apart from the fact Cashley is married to one of the hottest women in England
Gay rumours still haunts Richard Gere, Tom Cruise and some other of married or men been married with children. So the fact someone is married is no guarantee he or shes not gay. But I dont care if someone is bi- or gay but what I dont understand how people obviously so out of date with the real world get so much positive words as Scolari.

There's a football manager in Sweden who said he would throw a gay player out of his team and he made a racist comment about black people. This cost him his job and he's now a bit stigmatized and no one really wants to use his football knowledge anymore.
I would expect men like Scolari, Blatter and some other elder managers or top shots to face the same destiny as the Swedish former manager.

Brazil is a deeply religious country, being the worlds largest Roman catholic country....so maybe that would explain His comments. Such bigotry shouldn't be tolerated. What does a player's sexuality have to do with football?

Maybe Mr Scolari is still hiding in the closet?;)
