Cassano under fire for gay remarks
Italy striker Antonio Cassano has sparked furious reaction from a gay rights group after using a derogatory word to describe homosexuals
During a raucous press conference yesterday he was asked a question about television personality Cecchi Paone’s claim there are two homosexuals and two metrosexuals in the Italy squad.
“What’s a metrosexual?” he asked the questioner before adding: “If they’re queer, that’s their problem. I hope there aren’t any queers in the national team.”
