Soccer player in gay mag could be punished

Professional soccer player Jesus Datolo is under fire from the president of his team for posing in his underwear in Argentinian gay magazine Romeo Mag. Napoli team president Aurelio De Laurentis is said to be considering sanctions against the player for his revealing spread. Oh yes, the Europeans (Napoli is an Italian team) are soooo much more advanced than we backward Americans.

Even in the uber-macho world of European soccer, it's tough to believe a team would actually punish a player for being in a gay magazine. De Laurentis should be reeeeeally careful about where he's headed with this one.

A couple photos from the spread after the jump.
