“The sport has to change”: Craig Foster’s call for support for Josh Cavallo

Socceroos legend Craig Foster has urged the football community to offer more support to LGBTQ + players after Josh Cavallo comes out.

Last week, the Adelaide United star became the world’s first openly gay footballer.

Foster told Bill Woods and Mark Taylor that men’s sport has been a “homophobic” and “hyper-male environment” for too long.

“The sport has to change… we can’t just say, ‘Oh well done,’ blah blah, ‘let’s move on’ and do a Pride round.

“I would like to see all the fans and even the A-League itself… doing a lot this season about a safe environment for gay male players.

“How do we change our own behavior?”
