Barry Bennell liked children and as a football scout at Crewe Alexandra had the means to do as he pleased.
There are not a lot of gay footballers in the professional leagues even today – they usually quit and then said something via a great niece i doubt there where any in 1998.
It is 2016 and only now is this case getting msm attention. I do not give a stuff about football but it would appear there be more gay footballers back then than there are today.
It feels like a cover up and collusion to ignore bad news after all professional footballers must conform to some rules as prescribed by football society.
I am not saying it is ok. But you might think something is fishy both in media and football circles.
