Back to the footballing closet

PFA Chairman and York City FC player Clarke Carlisle has given the GFSN (Gay Football Supporters Network) an exclusive interview where he discusses homophobia in football and the possibilty of gay players coming out.
He recounts recent discrete conversations he had with eight “gay” professional players in his capacity as PFA chair and says: “Seven of the eight said they didn’t want to come out because they were worried about the media. Nothing came of our conversations with these players so I guess we are back to square one.”
