Awesome! Landon Donovan proves gay footballers can be accepted by including Robbie Rogers in a note [Picture]

Last year Robbie Rogers retired from football after announcing he was gay.

The American midfielder has since made a return with LA Galaxy and he’s clearly getting along well with his teammates.

On a team note written by Landon Donovan, the former Everton player included Rogers by writing ‘No wives, girlfriends, boyfriends or side pieces’.

The small gesture obviously meant a lot to Rogers, tweeting ‘Thanks for including me @landondonovan’.
