    Czech club makes two players train with female team after they made sexist comments towards female referee

    Two players of Czech Republic football club, Sparta Prague, spoke too quickly and out of tune after a football match with rival, Brno, which made the club swiftly put them in their places.

    Following a 3-3 draw in the Czech First League, the pair made sexist comments towards the officiating female assistant referee, Lucie Ratajova, stating that 'women belong in the kitchen', after she failed to spot an offside in the build up to Brno's last minute equaliser.

    Speaking after the game, Sparta goalkeeper Tomas Koubek said:
    'Women belong in the kitchen, Women should not officiate men's football.'
    Lukas Vacha who missed the game through injury called her a 'cooker'.
    They have since apologised for the remarks with Koubek issuing a public apology via his Facebook page on Monday.
    'Yesterday in Brno was an error that caused a lot of emotion,' he posted. I immediately after the game said something that I regret and for which I would like to apologise to all women. (The comment) was not meant (to be) chauvinistic, my statement was directed at a specific person and a specific situation that arose in the match. And in turn, I love my girls, and I want to have accomplished something we can be proud. '
    'The players will spend several days with the club's female side so that they can be made aware that women have plenty of worth outside the kitchen,' Sparta's director general Adam Kotalik told local press.
