Former Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has told Sky that gay footballers would be crazy to come out during their careers.
In September 2012, a footballer in the Bundesliga had given an anonymous interview to Fluter in which he said he and several other players in Germany were gay but added: “I would not be safe anymore if my sexuality was made public.”
