Blackpool's Jake Daniels Inspired by Adelaide United Josh Cavallo

Josh Cavallo's inspirational story has been the talk of the town this weekend. The youngster made his first-team debut for Blackpool two weeks ago‚ and was quickly made the centre of attention by the media and bigots. But‚ the story has a happier ending. Daniels has shown leadership and strength‚ and has made himself a target for bigots. Here are some things he should know about Josh Cavallo.

Justin Fashanu

After a long silence in the world of men's football‚ three men have come out - Blackpool's Jake Daniels‚ Adelaide United's Josh Cavallo and Justin Fashanu. Jake Daniels is the first openly gay male professional footballer to come out in the UK since 1990. He said he was inspired by Adelaide United's Josh Cavallo‚ the first male player to come out publicly in the world's top division. Despite being a high-profile footballer‚ Justin Fashanu was still active when he announced his sexuality. Fashanu was 37 years old when he committed suicide‚ hanging himself in his garage in London. His wife‚ Amal Fashanu‚ runs a charity foundation in his name. Jake Daniels also came out as gay and became the first black player to command a PS1 million transfer fee. Despite the recent tragedies‚ Justin Fashanu's story is a rare one in men's football. He played for Norwich City and West Ham‚ but tragically committed suicide in 1998. Apart from Fashanu‚ there is only one other openly gay male professional footballer. Josh Cavallo‚ an Adelaide United midfielder‚ recently made his public announcement‚ and has been open about his sexuality. After years of playing in the youth ranks‚ Fashanu came out as gay while still at the club. His public comeout came after a 'fantastic' season with the club. He is one of the most talented players at his age‚ and will hopefully be able to achieve even greater things in his future. Just like his idol‚ Josh Cavallo's story will inspire more players to come out in football.

Thomas Hitzlsperger

A new football star has been announced as the first ever black player to play for a Premier League club. Blackpool's Jake Daniels announced his sexuality a day after scoring four goals for the club's youth team. He has been with the club since he was seven and made his first team debut in May. In a statement‚ the club has expressed its support for the young player‚ saying that he is a great inspiration and will continue to do so. In 1990‚ Justin Fashanu came out to the world as gay. He later revived his football career with Torquay before taking his own life. Similarly‚ Thomas Hitzlsperger‚ a former Aston Villa and Leeds player‚ came out as gay after retiring from professional football. In 2013‚ he paid tribute to fellow gay footballer Charlie Daniels‚ who came out at the age of seventeen and was reportedly inspired by Adelaide United Josh. Although coming out as gay is not an easy decision‚ it is an important step. Not many people have the courage to come out in public‚ so embracing your sexuality is a big step. However‚ the positive reception that Daniels received from everyone he spoke to was encouraging. The newcomer vowed to do the same and help remove the taboo surrounding homosexuality in the sport. As far as football's LGBT community goes‚ it is encouraging that a number of prominent male players have chosen to come out and be open about their sexuality. The announcement was welcomed by fans and media and commended the bravery of the players and fans. Despite the repercussions for the wider world‚ the first openly gay male professional was born in Australia‚ and the other was a British player - Jake Daniels. Several players from the men's game have come out as gay. The former Liverpool and Manchester City player‚ who is now the manager of the San Diego Wave‚ came out in 2014. Another footballer‚ Thomas Hitzlsperger‚ came out after retiring. Both players were congratulated by their teammates and managers. In 2013‚ the Premier League partnered with Stonewall and the Rainbow Laces campaign to promote equality in the sport.

Andy Brennan

Two Australian footballers have come out as gay. Jake Daniels and Andy Brennan are both openly gay and play for Adelaide United. Both have received support and wide attention for their individuality. Jake Daniels grew up in Bispham‚ near Blackpool‚ and came through the club's youth ranks. He was signed to a senior contract earlier this year and made his debut against Peterborough last month. One of the world's most famous gay footballers is former Newcastle Jets participant Jake Daniels. This is the first time a professional male footballer has come out in Britain for the first time. He was supported by leading figures in English football. Australia's only other gay professional footballer is Uruguay's Josh Cavallo‚ who is also gay. Despite his personal issues‚ Jake Daniels is continuing to play and inspire others through his career. While this is a significant step forward‚ there are still many obstacles to overcome. While men's football has become more involved in social issues‚ it is still far from inclusive and diverse. So far‚ only one top-flight male player has come out as gay - Adelaide United's Josh. The rest of the world's football stars are still in the closet. The men's World Cup is set to be played in Qatar in six months - a country where homosexuality is illegal. It is important for gay footballers to be open about their sexuality‚ regardless of their role in the game. It is important for players to understand that being openly gay is not an easy thing. Some footballers are more likely to come out than others. In Australia‚ Josh Cavallo is one of the most prominent and openly gay men in the game. This is an important step for the future of gay football in Australia.

Josh Cavallo

The emergence of openly gay footballers is a major positive development for the game. Blackpool striker Jake Daniels became the first active male player to come out in the UK in almost 20 years. His announcement was welcomed by many‚ with leading figures in football hailing it as a historic day for English football. Among other reasons for coming out‚ Daniels was inspired by Australian out soccer player Josh Cavallo‚ who came out publicly last year. There have been no high-profile openly gay male football players since Justin Fashanu came out as gay in 1990. But Daniels‚ who is the first male professional footballer to come out in the UK‚ was inspired by Adelaide United Josh Cavallo and his fellow players. He acknowledged it was a step into the unknown‚ but cited examples of Cavallo and the late Olympic diving champion Tom Daley‚ who came out publicly about being gay. The decision to come out and play openly gay football has sparked a debate in Australian soccer. One fan was banned from watching live football for three years after shouting homophobic abuse at a Premier League match‚ while another fan was banned for life because he shouted homophobic at a game. Nonetheless‚ Daniels and Adelaide United's Josh Cavallo are both examples of equality and support for the gay community. It's also important to note that there are very few openly gay male footballers in the Premier League. Only two other players of top-level football have come out during their careers‚ including American Robbie Rogers. However‚ the first Australian male footballer to come out during his playing days was Andy Brennan. Despite the prevailing negative stereotypes‚ he was supported by his teammates and the media.
