Agree Dwarfy. I also heard about those stories in Italy. Even if he was exaggeratingreddwarf said:Oooh, good question.
I recently heard reports coming from Italy that a male prostitute had claimed that over 20 Serie A footballers were regular clients of his. The prostitute also said that the footballers were terrified of their sexuality becoming public knowledge and he refused to name any of them.
Although I truly believe that we live in a more tolerant society these days I think it would be very difficult for an openly gay footballer. I have no doubt that he would be a target for fans and I fear that the level of abuse he would get would astonish a lot of people.
Although tbh I do not see why something as private as your sexual preferences should be made public.
Im sure he slept with a few anyway. Arent 1 in 10 or so 'gay' anyway???
so there must be loads of gay footballers playing in the Prem.
Arsenal had a few, Bergkamp and Ljungberg and Sol to name a few.
I dont think footballers should come out though cos the abuse would be horrific
I think it was Jay who mentioned Justin Fashanu that was a tragic story tbh,
and Im surprised at your comment RFR, twas harsh mate.
