(English) Manchester United star Paul Pogba says he’d welcome a gay player in Premier League

Footballer Paul Pogba has said he’d welcome a gay player in the Premier League.

The Manchester United midfielder was speaking at the launch of UEFA’s RESPECT campaign, which aims to promote diversity in the sport.

Asked if a gay player would be welcome in the Premier League, he said: “That’s something that I’ve never seen but why not? It’s a human being.

“What he does in his private life has nothing to do with the player. You just have to respect him. Because he respects you, you respect him. That’s it.

“It’s all about respect. It’s all about equality everywhere in the world. We are all equal when we play football.”
