Former Manchester United and Barcelona manager, Louis van Gaal, has claimed that there are only a few gay footballers.

Van Gaal said this while speaking with Dutch LGBT newspaper, Gaykrant.

According to him, football “is not a mirror of society”.

Van Gaal, 68, who retired one year ago, however, admitted that he suspected that some players he managed were homosexual.

But he says that sexuality remains such a taboo subject inside dressing rooms and he would never advise a player to come out.

Asked if there are any gay footballers, Van Gaal said: “Yes, but not many.

“The football world is not a mirror of society.”
