Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has denied rumour that he is one of the two Premier League stars on the verge of coming out as gay.
Few days back, English tabloids were awash with stories that two Premier League players are preparing to come out as gay – which would make them the first British footballers to make the announcement while still playing at the top levels of the game.
It was suggested that one of the men is Luke Shaw but the Man U left-back has denied the suggestion on his twitter page.
He said: ‘It’s not me so everyone can shut up now.’
However, if the two players eventually unveiled their identities, they’d follow only the single example of former Norwich and S Nottingham Forest striker Nigerian-born Justin Fashanu, who – in 1990 – came out as gay.
Justin who was John Fashanu’s elder brother committed suicide eight years after while facing charges of sexual assault in United States.
