LaLiga President Javier Tebas expressed his thoughts on the possibility of a decision being made by a gay to come out. Tebas said he would be happy if the gay player made this decision because it would mean for this player in terms of not having to hide their true self. “If there are any homosexual players. And they are probably looking at the percentage, that would be good,” he said, replying to a question from reporters if he would welcome such an announcement. “I think it would be ideal if the player did this. But not because it is suitable for society, it is because the player should not hide it.”
Tebas also talked about racism in football and pointed out the actions that LaLiga took after the occasion against Inaki Williams in January. “When we had an issue with racism, we attacked it,” said Tebas about the situation. We’re the only league in the world that filed a legal complaint against those who were racist towards Williams in Cornella. “That is what you must do to attack racism. At least 15, we’ve made complaints about racist or homophobic chants.”
