Kežman, who is currently a Vice-President at Serbian club Vojvodina, ranted against homosexuality when asked about the Gay Pride event in Amsterdam last weekend.

The annual canal parade saw the likes of Dutch football coach Louis van Gaal, as well as former players Ronald de Boer, Patrick Kluivert, and Pierre van Hooijdonk.

And Kežman, who played for Dutch side PSV Eindhoven between 2000 and 2004, was unpleasantly surprised by the gesture of his fellow footballers.

Speaking to Serbian daily ALO!, Kežman said: "I cannot say I'm really surprised because the Dutch people are very liberal.

"Still, I think that homosexuality is an estrangement from God and it leads to spiritual ruin.

"In my opinion, homosexuality is a disease and it shoudn't be promoted at all.

"I wouldn't like if the Football Association of Serbia decided one day support the gay parade in this country."
