Thomas Hitzlsperger has said he believes his case proves that it is possible to be strong and gay. In an interview on his website he said:
They think in ... professional football that you have to be strong, powerful. They think being gay means you aren't that, you're the opposite, you're soft, you don't really like to tackle, you're really weak.
But ... people nicknamed me 'The Hammer' early on because I've got a powerful left foot, I'm a strong guy ... Why do people think that being gay means that you're weak? I think I proved the opposite.
