Nearly two months after walking away from the game of soccer, Robbie Rogers has shared his story about leaving soccer and coming out as a gay man for the first time on television.
The former USMNT midfielder spoke on Monday to ABC’s Nightline program and CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, detailing his fears about how he would be perceived by his peers in the locker room, and the public before his blog post in February when he announced his retirement.
“It’s hard to describe the feeling, but you go to work having the feeling that ‘I hope no one figures out I’m gay’,” Rogers said to Nightline.
