Griezmann favours stopping games to stop homophobic & racist behaviour
- Ligue 1 has seen a spate of offensive behaviour in the stands.
- Homophobic banners were spotted in some grounds.
- Griezmann believes stopping games is the solution.
Homophobic tunes have been played in French stadiums this season which becomes a problem like racism. Games at Nice and Metz were temporarily suspended after offensive banners were unfurled. Stopping matches is among the proposed solutions.
"For me, it's very good to stop the matches, whether for homophobic songs or racist songs," Antoine Griezmann told RTL. "If we stop the matches, people will not be happy and they will stop doing it."
The Frenchman has done a few things for the LGBT community. Earlier this year, he said he'd have no problem having a gay teammate.
"I would be proud that he felt he could tell me," reflected Griezmann on a hypothetical situation if his teammate were gay.
