Brave footballers

Beginning from last week there were unusual and very brave confessions made in football.
On 27 October Joshua Cavallo wrote on his social media account: "I am a footballer and I am gay". After this sentence, the 21-year-old defender who plays for Adelaide united is publicly to be known as the first footballer who is admitting his sexuality. Plenty of support came from everyone: fans, politicians, various organizations and other athletes, however one of the best and powerful message has wrote the manufacturing sports company giants Adidas: "Sport is for everyone.".
And just couple of days ago Radio Murcia - Cadena ser revealed a letter from an unnamed Spanish player who confessed that he is bisexual. In it among others it was written that he lives with the male partner.
Usually these kind of releases are spoken after their career are over only to avoid different types of discrimination from society as a whole.
