The Premier League footballer admitted that he is gay
The British newspaper The Sun has published an open letter of a non-traditional sexual football player playing in the Premier League. The athlete wanted to remain anonymous.
"I'm gay. Even writing about it in a letter is a big step for me. Only my family և select friends know about my sexual orientation. I'm not ready to share it with my team or coach. What is it like to live like that? Day by day it turns into an absolute nightmare and affects my mental health more and more. "I feel trapped, I am afraid that revealing the truth will only make the situation worse," the footballer's letter reads.
In the top leagues, no one has yet announced a non-traditional sexual orientation until the end of their careers.
The most famous case is the former player of the German national team Thomas Hitzlsperger.
