New LA Galaxy team member Robbie Rogers meets the media: “I thought I couldn’t be both a soccer player and a gay athlete”


Robbie Rogers has been signed to a multi-year contract with the LA Galaxy becoming the first openly gay player in the Major League Soccer league.

He posted this message on Twitter: “An exciting future lies ahead, not only for me but for our society.”

The Galaxy is well-equipped to deal with any extra attention this may bring after having David Beckham as a member for five years.

He may play as soon as tonight!

Robbie told the media yesterday: “I kept my secret because I thought I couldn’t be both a soccer player and a gay athlete…I was afraid to put myself back in a situation where I felt like I was kind of an outcast or just different from people, but through this whole process I’ve realized that everyone is a bit different.”
