Football is not a game for girls

Carlo Ancelotti Press ConferenceTranslated from a Spanish article I just read.

Absolutely furious. Who does he think he is?! “Football is not a game for girls” “Football is a man’s game”. IDIOT.

Real Madrid coach , Carlo Ancelotti , said Friday in a press conference prior to tomorrow’s clash against Atletico Madrid that “football is not a game for girls .” Asked about the different styles of play from both teams and the aggressiveness of Atletico in the field, the Madrid coach has shielded that football is a man’s game .
“This is football ,” said the Italian coach laughed , implying that women are excluded from the equation.

These controversial statements increase the controversy surrounding the machismo in the pitch and in the institutions of a sport in which women hardly count for nothing. With a much less media and relegated to the lower league very male shot the female presence in the referee of today is very scarce and non-existent in the higher divisions.
