Spanish pro footballer Alberto Lejárraga has publically come out as part of the LGBTQ+ community. On 25 April, the Marbella Fútbol Club was promoted to Spain’s fourth-tier league after beating Real Jean in a tense 1-0 match.
Following their massive promotion, the team’s goalkeeper Lejárraga took to Twitter to celebrate the exciting news by uploading an array of photos featuring his family and friends.
The heartfelt post also included two snapshots of him hugging and kissing his unnamed boyfriend – who’s shown wearing a Marbella FC jersey with Lejárraga’s name written on the back. “Thank you so much for always being by my side, during the good and the bad.
Now it’s our turn to live it up,” he wrote alongside two heart emojis. Shortly after Lejárraga uploaded his heartwarming post, fans flocked to his mentions with congratulatory messages.
