Play­ers fear gay ac­tion, claims Alan

Midweek Sport - - AGONY SPECIAL -

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.”
