Bayern Munich player Leon Goretzka condemned the statements of the ambassador of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Khaled Salman, about homosexuals, describing them as from ancient times.

The former Qatari international said homosexuality is a “mental disorder”. He called on gays traveling to Qatar, to watch the World Cup matches, to “accept our laws.”

In the match, which Bayern Munich won over Werder Bremen (6 to 1), the fans raised a banner denouncing Salman’s statements.

After the match, Goretzka spoke to the German media, saying: “These are very unfair statements, reflecting the thoughts of a man who came from ancient times.” He added, “You don’t find anything to say, when you hear such words from a man who was an ambassador for the World Cup, before the matches start.”
