The world football world woke up today (Wednesday) to a historic morning when Josh Caballo, a footballer from the Australian team Adelaide United, announced his exit from the closet as a homosexual and became the first active footballer to ever do so.
A few hours later, the move seemed to be the right move for Caballo who won huge support full of few luxury clubs and huge athletes such as Liverpool, Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus.
