PRAGUE (AP) - Sparta Prague goalkeeper Tomas Koubek has apologized for his emotional outburst against women after a lineswoman failed to call offside in a league game.

Brno midfielder Alois Hycka was several meters offside at the decisive moment before he used his position to equalize in stoppage time and salvage a 3-3 draw for Brno against Sparta Prague.

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

On Monday, the Czech Republic goalkeeper posted on Facebook: “Immediately after the game, I said a sentence for which I’m sorry and for which I apologize to all women.”

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