Sparta Prague’s goalkeeper said “women belong at the stove” after a female assistant referee failed to flag an opponent offside during a league game.

Tomáš Koubek, speaking after Sunday’s 3-3 draw with Brno, added: “Women should not officiate men’s football.”

Injured midfielder Lukáš Vácha, meanwhile, described the official, Lucie Ratajova, as “the cooker”.

After Sunday’s game, Koubek said: “My opinion is that women belong at the stove and should not officiate men’s football.”

The soccer federation’s disciplinary committee is scheduled to deal with Koubek’s remarks on Thursday.
