  1. “The football world is not designed for them, it’s a special atmosphere, one in which you stand naked under the showers.” Sounds like Gay heaven to me!

  2. this old guy is still in the prehistoric times – it would be nice to know how many gays are in italy’s teams

  3. Lolz old people just think of stereotype, and I don’t think a stereotype would be playing football anyway XD. I bet a gay footballer would be straighter acting then any straight player XD

  4. There are no gay men in football, just as there are none – or didn’t used to be – in China. At least they’ve started to say ‘..as far as I know.’ Encouraging silence and invisibility in the sport just entrenches its moronically sexist, racist and homophobic culture. A sport characterised at times by great physical skill and beautiful men is marred by these ugly features. They were certainly what put me off it completely at school, and I’m sure legions of other gay men have gone through the same experience.

  5. There are gay leagues for just about every sport out there. Anyone who thinks there are no professional footballers is just stupid and in total denial.

  6. “The football world is not designed for them, it’s a special atmosphere, one in which you stand naked under the showers.”

    Well, i can shower naked, can i be a footballer?

    The biggest problem would be the bruised egos of the straight footballers when the gays one declined their advances for blowjobs.
