Sarri: Napoli would welcome a gay player

After being given a two game suspension for making anti-gay comments, Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri said that there would be no problems if a gay  footballer was to play for the Serie A outfit.

“I was wrong, I admit it. There are no gays in football? No. There were, there are, and there always will be,” he said.

“I hope this whole incident, born badly and ended well, can help people move forward and come out into the open,” he told the reporters.
