Philipp Lahm, former Bayern Munich defender, captain of Germany who won the football world cup in 2014, made incredible statements in the book Das Spiel. Die Welt des Fussbals, warning soccer players against coming out. He said: "If someone had in mind to do this and were to ask me for advice, I would suggest that they consult with a trusted person and honestly come to terms with themselves, as to what the real reasons are for this step.
But I would never advise them to talk about this issue with his teammates: he should take into account that in many stadiums he would be subjected to insults, offenses and defamatory phrases: who would put up with it and how long? It seems to me that currently in the Bundesliga there is little chance of to successfully take such a step and get out of it without personal harm.
" It is incredible how in 2021 there are still prejudices about how to live one's life and having to keep hidden some truths that should not affect a person's life in the least. Less than a sportsman or sportswoman.
