Soccer club sacks coach for rape analogy | Ralph Lauren

A soccer coach who used an offensive analogy about rape over a refereeing decision has been sacked by his Indian Super League club.

Odisha wrote on Twitter on Tuesday it decided “to terminate” Stuart Baxter’s contract with immediate effect.

The decision came a day after last-placed Odisha lost a league match 1-0 and Baxter said in a post-match TV interview: “You need decisions to go your way and they didn’t.

“I don’t know when we’re going to get a penalty. I think one of my players would have to rape someone or get raped himself if he was going to get a penalty.”

Odisha immediately issued an apology saying the comment was “completely unacceptable whatever the context.”

Baxter, a former coach of the South African national football team, was hired last year by Odisha.

The Englishman also coached glamour South African club Kaizer Chiefs from 2012 to 2015.
