Miedema: Male player needs to come out for the game to accept gay footballers

Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema believes it may take an elite men's player to come out as gay for football to accept homosexuality.

While several current top female players are openly gay, there has still yet to be a high-profile equivalent among their male counterparts.

Megan Rapinoe, a World Cup winner with the United States who was named Ballon D'Or Feminin winner in 2019, is an LGBTQ activist and Miedema is in a relationship with Arsenal team-mate Lisa Evans.

But, while the likes of former Aston Villa and Germany midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger announced he was gay following his retirement, the Premier League is still yet to see an active player do so.
