Why football IS ready for a gay player to come out... why Chris Sutton disagrees with FA chairman Greg Clarke who says players would suffer 'significant abuse'
There has never been a better time for a footballer to come out and say: ‘I am gay.’ I completely disagree with Greg Clarke’s comments to the governance of football inquiry.
The FA chairman said he ‘loathes’ and ‘feels ashamed’ that football has not created the ‘safe space’ — but when is that likely to happen? Five years? Ten years?
He says there would be ‘significant abuse’, but is that true? We cannot use Twitter as a barometer of how people will react.
