Toni Kroos (30) speaks plain text! The athlete talks about the topic of outing in the football scene. As an established kicker, he knows what is happening on the pitch and in the cabin. After all, can Toni can already look back on a great career and is a member of the German national team. Now the Real Madrid star has devoted himself to one thing that is often kept secret: homosexuality in football. He now revealed why he thinks that gay footballers don’t have it easy.
“My common sense tells me, of course, that everyone should be free to live that out in the 21st century. But I don’t know if I would advise anyone to come out as an active player,” he said Toni towards the German GQ magazine. The father of the family also had a reason for this: “Sometimes people throw certain words around the square.” And the feelings of the fans in the stadium are not controllable in his eyes, emphasized the 30-year-old. Therefore, one cannot avoid that someone is “devalued and insulted”, he added. The professional who comes out can get support, but maybe not from all fans. Ultimately, every player has to be loud Toni decide for yourself.
A prominent example of a kicker who only came out after his active career is Thomas Hitzlsperger (38). The ex-international made a novelty in Germany. He was the first professional to announce that he was gay.
