Great excitement in France: In order not to play in the colors of the homosexual scene, Idrissa Gueye is reluctant to appear in a rainbow jersey for Paris Saint-Germain. The criticism is great afterwards.

Not included: Idrissa Gueye refused to take part in Paris Saint-Germain’s league game against Montpellier (4-0) on Saturday so as not to wear the rainbow symbol in support of LGBTQ rights, BBC Sport learned. After coach Mauricio Pochettino initially stated that the Senegalese was absent for “personal reasons”, the French Football Federation is said to have followed up with the midfielder.

Agree: Gueye’s national team-mates Crystal Palace’s Cheikhou Kouyate and Watford’s Ismaila Sarr had hailed his stance on social media. Kouyate described the 32-year-old as “a real man” under a post. Sarr captioned a similar photo with three heart emojis and “100%.” PSG, on the other hand, said on Wednesday that the club was “very proud to wear this shirt”.

Other customs: According to “AFP”, Gueye has now been asked in a letter from the French Football Federation’s ethics committee to “publicly apologise” or to declare that the rumors that he has refused to play are “unfounded”. Homosexuality is illegal in Senegal.
