Gay Footballer Yoann Lemaire Rejected By French Club?

By Ollie Irish

Just when you thought it was impossible to love the damned French anymore…

Yoann Lemaire, a homosexual footballer, has reportedly been rejected by his club in France. Associated Press says that that Lemaire spent 14 years with FC Chooz before taking a sabbatical, but the team now “won’t register him again to avoid any ‘trouble’ with his teammates.”

It’s also alleged that one of Lemaire’s former Chooz team-mates “made homophobic comments in front of a TV camera” in May 2009, which led to Lemaire leaving the club that year. But now that Lemaire wants to return to the team, the club refuses to re-register him. Oh dear.

According to Le Monde, Lemaire published a book about his experiences after his teammate’s anti-gay slurs.

Paris Foot Gay, a pro-gay rights organisation based in the French capital, has urged that Chooz face sanctions for its disgraceful treatment of Lemaire.

    If only every footballer who was gay actually came out of the closet…Nobody would even care anymore.

  2. J says:

    Nick, you make it sound like there are two gay footballers per locker room.

    Ollie, totally right.

  3. Tim says:

    It would be daft to think that an entire league or country only had 1 or 2 homosexual players in it.

    Funny how a player can act with total disregard for others and be lauded by the fans come Saturday, but if he happens to be gay then all bets are off.

    There is a team that is filled with rabid butt munchers:
    Liverpool FC.

    The many, the queers,… the roto rooters.
    God bless the reds.

    Phil, you’re a moron.

    Homophobia is not sexy.

    I am a 22 y/o woman and if my boyfriend was anti-gay I’d dump him.

    Phil T – sounds like someone is indulging themselves in a few fantasies…
    Go on Phil…come out, come out, wherever u are!
