Amal Fashanu, niece of Justin Fashanu, the only ever openly gay British professional footballer, meets publicist Max Clifford to ask why no gay player has followed in her uncle's boots in over 20 years.

Publicist Max Clifford said he has helped several Premiership footballers keep their homosexuality a secret in order to preserve their careers and that the attitudes of most people in and around the game remain in the Dark Ages.
