Two Sparta Prague players have been ordered to train with Sparta's women's team after telling a female assistant referee "women belong at the stove”.
Goalkeeper Tomas Koubek and midfielder Lukas Vacha apologised for insulting Lucie Ratajova, who was one of the officials during Sparta's 3-3 draw with Brno on Sunday.
Koubek, speaking after the match, said women "belong at the stove" and "should not officiate men's football."
Vacha, who missed the game with an injury, described Ratajova, as "the cooker".
Brno midfielder Alois Hycka appeared to be several metres offside before scoring the final goal of Sunday's match in injury time.
Sparta's director general Adam Kotalik said: "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."
The Czech Football Federation said the players' comments were totally unacceptable.
