ARGENTINA'S soccer bosses have precipitated an outcry after publishing outrageous World Cup recommendations on the way to "get fortunate with a Russian lady".
In a manual which those attending were given to take home, one chapter posted onto social networks was entitled: "What do I have to do to get lucky with a Russian girl".
On Tuesday, the AFA held a course for players, staff and journalists about what to expect when they travel to Russian Federation.
The Argentine Football Association is under fire for its freaky attempt at playing matchmaker for Russia-bound journalists covering the World Cup, supplying them with a manual with a chapter entitled: "How to stand a chance with a Russian girl". Anyone wanting a chance with a Russian man was left to figure things out for themselves. Apparently, they like people who are "clean" and smell "good". Tengo el cuaderno. Nos lo sacaron para cortar esa hoja pero yo la guardé cuando supuse lo que harían. It also said that Russian woman don't like to be seen as objects.
'Maybe they want that too, but they also want to feel important and special, so you should treat the woman in front of you are someone who has value, with their own ideas and desires'.
One other a part of the chapter tells the boys travelling to Russia: "Don't ask silly questions on intercourse. For Russians, sex is something very private and not discussed in public", the manual states. "Be real and talk about you in real terms, talk about your faults in a fun way and about your positive points". The manual was reportedly distributed at that event.
"The teacher selected the information to give out to the attendees and, unfortunately, by an involuntary error, at the time of printing a text that was never part of the training was included", said Taraborelli, adding that the subject does not reflect the beliefs held by the association. "Warned by the administrative staff of the Department, they proceeded to withdraw it immediately".
"We regret that this mistake has overshadowed the importance of the day and the educational activity provided by AFA, expressing our most honest apologies to those who were affected by the publications, which in no way reflects the thinking of the Argentine Football Association, nor that of its President Claudio Tapia or any of its directors", read the statement, attributed to Alejandro Taraborelli of the AFA's Education Department.
