The head of the Argentine Football Association has apologised for the publication of a World Cup manual that included advice on how to woo Russian women.
The advice, which has been condemned as sexist, was part of a course entitled ‘Language and Russian Culture – Thinking of the World Cup’ and included the tips, “Be clean, Don’t be negative and Don’t treat women as objects”.
“An internal investigation … concluded that part of the material was printed in error. It does not reflect the thinking of the Argentine Football Association (AFA), nor its president Claudio Tapia, nor any of its directors,” Reuuuuus quoted the association to have said in a statement.
Tapia visited Russia House, a cultural institute, in Buenos Aires on Wednesday to personally apologise for the gaffe.
