LA Galaxy footballer Robbie Rogers was interviewed today on The Dan Patrick Show.
During the candid 10-minute interview, Rogers discussed a variety of topics including why other athletes don’t come out as well as the differences between soccer fans in England compared to the United States.
“There’s a reason athletes don’t come out. Sports are a bit homophobic. If it wasn’t, everybody would do it …. It’s not something that athletes just make up in their minds. It’s something that needs to change. It is changing.”
Rogers also discussed how he has struggled with religion and wondered what God wanted from him. But now he believes God put him in this role to help people.
It’s an honest and heartfelt interview with an intelligent and well-spoken soccer star, and definitely worth a listen.
