They touch your thighs and buttocks to see what you will do. I don’t like it when a gay person shares a shower with me and looks at my rear end with desire or even gets upset when I’m naked.”
A Daily Telegraph article used a quote from Berizzo. The day after the Mexican newspaper La Crónica de Hoy printed that quote, he denied having said that:
“It is terrible. This is important. That note was never made. I don’t mind having a co-worker who is gay. In their private lives, people can do anything they want.” — Berizzo quoted by Clarín.
