FA chairman Greg Clarke says football still has a homophobia problem as he admits gay players would suffer 'vile abuse' if they came out



FA chairman Greg Clarke has revealed his personal shame at the continued presence of homophobia within English football, saying he can understand why gay players choose not to open up about their sexuality.
Clarke, who told MPs of his 'deep loathing' of homophobic abuse during a sitting of the Culture, Media and Sport select committee on Monday, admitted that his governing body still has plenty of work to do to eradicate the problem.
