Adelaide United Chief Executive Officer, Nathan Kosmina, has made the following comments after Josh Cavallo received homophobic abuse at AAMI Park on Saturday evening.
“We are appalled by the verbal abuse Josh received by fans at AAMI Park last night.
“Adelaide United is proud to be an inclusive and diverse football club, and to see one of our players subjected to homophobic abuse is disappointing and upsetting.
“Josh continues to show immense courage and we join him in calling out abuse, which has no place in society, and it will not be tolerated by our Club.
“We will continue to work with the Australian Professional Leagues and Melbourne Victory to identify perpetrators and prosecute them accordingly.”
