Fulvio Collovati, a 1982 World Cup winner with Italy, has been suspended from his role as a television pundit over sexist remarks about women and tactics. “Rai has suspended Fulvio Collovati from all TV and radio activity until Saturday, March 9,” the broadcaster said in a statement on Tuesday. The announcement came after the former defender said women could not “speak about tactics” on Sunday’s edition of “Quelli che il calcio”. “When I hear a woman speak about tactics it turns my stomach. I can’t do it. If she talks about the match and how it went, okay. But she can’t talk about tactics because a woman doesn’t understand like a man,” he said in an outburst that caused embarrassment on the set. (AFP)
