In Ghana, and Africa, homosexuality is not only taboo, it could get you castrated, jailed, ostracised or all of the above. And more.
The biggest football story (apart from the title race) of the weekend in Spain has centred around a picture of Barcelona teammates Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gerard Pique which caught the twosome in a close embrace and sparked wild rumours that the pair are homosexual.
Initially ignoring the female reporter’s question of “Ibra, what do you think of the photo?,” a few minutes later the Barcelona hitman called the woman over to his car and offered a very telling response to her question.
Zlatan: “Come to my house and you’ll see if I’m gay… And bring your sister!”
Have a look. It leaves me wondering what an African player would do if he were asked such a question because of a photo like that.

They say Zlatan is gay. And he responds. If this were Africa!
