I think Schofield's situation is different. He has two daughters and has been married for 27 years. There are other people involved, not just him.Baffling really how it's still so hard to come out this day and age. Very, very, very happy Stuttgart's Hitzlsperger is out since years and he's working his job and there's no homophobic abuse or whatever. Everyone loves him as a club legend, no matter his sexual orientation.
I feel sorry for his wife. They would have made plans for the future together, and I know she's supporting him, but she must be in agony.
