His representatives previously denied that he boycotted the fixture last season but are yet to comment on his absence this season.

When asked about the reports, LGBT+ Sports Federation president Eric Arassus said: “Idrissa Gueye is a great player, but religion is not a part of the sport.

Every player took part [in rainbow shirt initiative], except him.

He should be sanctioned. Gueye’s excuses show that the club [PSG] and League let homophobia happen.

In Gueye’s home country of Senegal, gay marriage has not been legalised and homosexuality can lead to up to five years imprisonment.
