Peruvian Goalkeeper Gets In Trouble For "Sexist, Denigrating" Comments About A Female Referee

After a 2-0 loss in second-tier Peruvian futbol on Sunday, CA Mannucci goalkeeper Victor Ulloa had something mean to say about female referee Auria Christama, who helped call the match.

"The señorita should go cook and not dedicate herself to soccer. Women exist to cook and serve men, not to get involved in soccer."

Disciplinary action was publicly demanded. Internal disciplinary action was assessed. And, an apology has been offered.
