Olivier Giroud gave an interview to the French newspaper Le Figaro where he talked about homosexuality in football.
French President Olivier Giroud believes that "it is impossible to openly be gay in football," and that the idea that the sport is far from accepting "gay" players is "euphemism."
In a French daily Le Figaro interview, the 32-year-old said: "There is still a long way to go."
"When I saw Tomas Hitzlsper in 2014 after retirement, it was very exciting. At that time, I thought it was impossible to be a homosexual in football," he said.
"There's plenty of testosterone in the beach resort, rooms, collective showers … it's complicated, but that's it. I understand the pain and difficulty of the people who took over and I'm ultra-tolerant," he said.
Various teams in the Premier League will once again show support to Stonevall's Rainbov Lace campaign later this month with players who wear colorful ties. Also, the captain's gloves and corner flags will have long colors. Various clubs in the English First Division will use this additional equipment in two matches, while clubs of the other English league will choose the game between November 24 and December 1 for this.
