Bayern Munich and Germany midfielder Leon Goretzka has said anti-gay comments made by a Qatar World Cup ambassador are "from another millenium."

Former Qatar international Khalid Salman told German broadcaster ZDF on Tuesday that homosexuality was "damage in the mind" and said gay fans would have to "accept our rules," referring to homosexuality being illegal in the Gulf state.

Goretzka hit back at those observations after Bayern's 6-1 win against Werder Bremen, during which fans unveiled banners showing their opposition to Salman's comments.
