Players fear gay action, claims Alan
CAMP comedian Alan Carr says footballers would be scared of being bummed in the showers if one of their team-mates came out of the closet.
The gay comedian, 35, is the son of former Northampton Town full-back and manager Graham Carr, who is currently Newcastle United’s chief scout.
Having grown up in a football-dominated environment, the Chatty Man presenter is fully aware of the general attitudes of those involved in the beautiful game.
And he reckons misconceptions about gay men put footballers and managers off coming out.
Alan (above) said: “In the showers, people would assume you were a bumming machine. If you’re homosexual, people think you’re constantly having sex.”
