The Secret Footballer wants to come out, but he’s worried about the implications. We all want official confirmation of his identity, but not at a heavy price to him. So much insight and entertainment provided over the years.

In an interview with Colin Murray on the BBC, he said, “Everyone wants to out me but only I’m going to do that. The issue would be a legal one and I would probably have to bankrupt myself in order to survive. You have to prepare for the worst and, while there are no names in the books, there’s a lot of money in football and a lot of people with a lot of money. They don’t even have to be proved right they just have to put a case on.”
