The 27-year-old midfielder has played for his country 45 times and has played for Sampdoria and Udinese in Italy. Jankto said in a video posted on Twitter:

“Hi, I’m Jakub Jankto. Like everybody else, I have my strengths, I have my weaknesses. I have a family, I have my friends. I have a job, which I have been doing as best as I can for years, with seriousness, professionalism, and passion.

“Like everybody else, I also want to live my life in freedom, without fears, without prejudice, without violence, but with love. I’m homosexual and I no longer want to hide myself.”

A message at the end of the video read: “This is not entertainment. The purpose of this video is to encourage others.”JAMB Result

Jankto follows in the footsteps of Australian Josh Cavallo, who came out in public in 2021, and Blackpool’s Jake Daniels, who is the only British male player who has come out as gay so far.

“Everything else concerns his personal life. No further comments. No more questions. You have our support. Live your life, Jakub. Nothing else matters.”

The Premier League replied to Jankto’s tweet, saying: “We’re with you, Jakub. Football is for everyone.”

The Professional Footballers’ Association added: “Well said, Jakub. We’re all with you!”, while players’ organisation FIFPRO said: “Live your life, Jakub. Proud.

“This is a history-making moment for the men’s game. Jakub is the first active senior international player to come out as gay or bisexual publicly. That in itself is a really significant moment for football.

“I think many people will be familiar with male footballers coming out over the years, but to do it at the elite level, to do it at the age of 27 when you’ve won over 40 international caps for his country, this is a life-changing moment for him, but also shifts the men’s game into a new stage of understanding the experiences of what it’s like to be gay or bisexual and to play at that level.JAMB Result

“I think Jakub has spoken really eloquently and he’s used the power of social media to get his message across and it’s already having a huge impact.”
