Justin Campaign Statement On News That Swedish Player Anton Hysén Has Publicly Come Out

The Justin Campaign is delighted to hear the news that Anton Hysén, who plays for Swedish 4th tier side Utsiktens BK, has decided to publicly come out.

Hysén, who is the son of former Liverpool and Fiorentina star Glenn Hysén, reveals his sexuality in an interview with Offside magazine.

Coming not long after England cricketer Steven Davies publicly declared his homosexuality, Hysén's move is another positive step on the road to total equality for all in football.

The Justin Campaign applauds Hysén's honesty and bravery and is sure that his declaration will inspire others to simply, and openly, be themselves whilst being part of the beautiful game.

We also hope that the Swedish footballing authorities will do all they can to support Hysén in the coming weeks and months.
