Toni Kroos spoke about homosexuality during an interview with 'GQ' magazine in which he expressed his willingness to retire from Real Madrid.

It is always a good time to defend the rights of those groups that are mistreated in their daily lives and Toni Kroos took advantage of an interview to talk about homosexuality and football.

Surprisingly, the German midfielder admitted that he would not recommend any player to come out of the closet.

"Common sense tells me that we should all be able to live in complete freedom, there's no doubt about it. But I don't know if I would recommend a player to come out of the closet," Kroos said.

The ex-Bayern man was doubtful about the treatment a gay player would receive from the fans.

"Certain words are often used in stadiums and, considering the emotions experienced in the stands, I can't be sure that the player wouldn't end up being insulted or belittled," explained Kroos.

"It shouldn't be like that. I'm sure that a player, if he decides to take this step, would be supported by many teams. But I doubt this would happen in front of rival fans," concluded the Real Madrid player
