Chelsea midfielder adresses GAY rumours with a classy message

Chelsea midfielder was rumoured to be homosexual and many expected him to come out earlier this week but he has tackled the issue with a classy message.

Chelsea have been very busy this transfer window. They are the instigators of possibly the biggest striker merry-go-round of the decade involving Juventus, Milan, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and of course, Genoa. There have been outgoings and possibly future incomings in other areas of the field as well. Safe to say, the Blues are firmly embroiled in the madness of the transfer season. However, a quite frankly unique story started doing rounds in the pressers earlier in the week.

Reports in media claimed that Chelsea youngster, Ruben Loftus-Cheek was all set to become the first openly gay footballer in the Premier League. The reports caught on like fire and were soon all across the internet. The matter bloated up not only because it would have been the first time a player would have openly admitted his homosexuality but also because the player was an English international plying his trade at a top 6 club.

Loftus-Cheek was quick to issue a response to all this hoo-ha. In a classy message posted on his Twitter account, the 22-year-old denied all such rumours. He was quick to point out that any footballer who did come out would have his full support. He wrote:

“Any player who came out as gay, they’d have my full support and respect. But the rumour isn’t true.”

On field meanwhile, Loftus-Cheek is enduring a tough season. Used sparingly by Sarri, he is also facing injury issues. The Englishman has only started 1 game in the Premier League but has made 5 appearances in the Europa League indicating that he is very much a part of the ”second team”.

Author’s Take

Ruben Loftus-Cheek dealt with a potentially serious issue with grace. He still has a long way to go in his career and dealing with rumours is, unfortunately, a part of that. For now, however, he must put his entire focus on gaining a spot in the first choice XI.
