Idrissa Gueye’s absence from PSG’s anti-homophobia game day appears to have enraged the whole LGBTQ community.

Idrissa Gueye declined to play in Saturday’s encounter between Paris Saint-Germain and Montpellier, which ended in a 4-0 victory for PSG.

Despite the fact that the Senegalese midfielder traveled to Montpellier with his teammates.

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino stated in a statement sighted by MandyNews.com that Idrissa’s absence on the pitch is due to personal reasons.
