Getafe: The question that outraged Sparta Prague: “Is Jankto still in the same dressing room as his teammates?”

ANDhe world of sport turned to Jakub Jankto after the soccer player announced that he is homosexual. The joint applause and the standardization of the message by his colleagues, clubs, athletes and the press helped Jakub live the days that followed more calmly.

The footballer was aware that not everyone was ready to listen to his message and he knew he would receive criticism, but what really outraged him, his teammates and his club was the embarrassing question from a journalist: “Is Jankto still in the same locker room as his teammates?”

logically the question was not answered, since from the club they were not willing to tolerate this type of issue. The whole team, led by their coach Brian Priske, has been a fundamental support for the footballer when it comes to fighting against this type of incident. Priske’s unilateral support has helped the footballer take the step of communicating his sexual orientation, since for him “he is an excellent person.”

From Priske to Mchel

The poor sports career meant that they did not meet for a long time at Getafe, but the relationship between Mchel and Jankto was fantastic from day one. The coach was concerned about his adaptation to Spanish soccer and had a very close relationship with the soccer player. through BRANDMchel sent a message to Jankto wishing him all the happiness in the world, something that the Czech footballer did not hesitate to thank.

Grateful for the cover of MARCA

During the meeting with MARCA, Jakub received the cover of the day after the announcement as a gift., something that the footballer valued and appreciated, especially for coming from Spain, a place to which he may have to return in just a few months. His contract with Getafe is still valid, so perhaps he will wear blue again next season.
