Some very sexist soccer players were sent to train with their club's women's team


Sweet, sweet justice. 

A Czech soccer club called Sparta Prague were playing a game against another Czech team last weekend and were winning 3-2 at the end of the game. The other team managed to score a goal right in the last seconds of the match.

Apparently, Prague players Lukas Vacha and Tomas Koubek thought the game should have ended before the other team could have scored, and so they made some very sexist comments about female referee Lucie Ratajova.

As a result, they've been sent to train with the Sparta Prague women's team and will serve as team ambassadors.

Vacha tweeted this, which when translated, says "To the cooker."

In my opinion, women should stay in the kitchen and not officiate men's football

Koubek also made his own inflammatory comments, but chose to do so directly after the game. 

As a direct result of their sexism, both players were sent by the club's sporting director to train with Sparta Prague's women's team for the near future so they can get a feel for just how skillful women in soccer can be, reports Goal.com.

They've also been made ambassadors for the women's team in the Champion's League, an international soccer tournament.
