Championship footballer to come out as gay

Ah cool, thanks for the info. How was he received after coming out and still playing? I could be wrong but the lack of/different terrace culture might mean he didn’t get as much abuse from fans Stateside?

Actually he was received very well. Oh, I’m sure he was the target of some abuse, but generally it was seen as positive. Playing in Los Angeles instead of Texas or somewhere more white evangelical probably helped as well. And a lot of the bigots were keeping their mouths shut before Trump came along and inspired them to be vocal again.
