The young Spanish starlet Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáez de la Torre, known as Suso is set to be investigated by The Football Association after he tweeted a picture of his fellow Liverpool team-mate Jose Enrique with a controversial caption.

The complete tweet could by seen in this image.  Suso posted an image of Enrique getting his teeth whitened with the message “what f*** is he doing? This guy is gay… he does everything except play football.

Suso quickly removed the message and tweeted: “I didn’t mean it in that way about ‘gay’. Don’t want anyone to feel offended. Just joking. But anyway sorry.”

The tweet created a lot of controversy, and many Liverpool fans lambasted Suso to not use such language.

“Please don’t use the word gay as a put down,” the Sun quoted a fan, as replying to Suso.

Another fan Ed Whitfield added: “Being gay isn’t a mental illness.”
