08 March 2016, 14:35Israel Ojoko

London - Former Nigerian/English footballer John Fashanu’s daughter Amal said she knows at least seven footballers currently playing in the English Premier League who are gay.

John Fashanu’s older brother, Justin, who was also a footballer, committed suicide in 1998 after publicly revealing he was gay.

Amal told BBC Radio 5 Live, that she knows of seven gay players currently playing in England's top division and explained why they may have chosen not to speak publicly about it.

"I actually know myself of seven. I will never, ever share their details. I’m not going to out them because I would never do that.

"You want to be honest, even to help them out, but you just can’t do that. The football world is extremely dark.

"I don’t even want to imagine being a footballer, what it must be like."

Amal Fashanu presented a documentary for BBC Three titled 'Britain's Gay Footballers' in 2012 in which she investigated the issue of homosexuality in the game.
