Osieck apologises for post-match comment

Socceroos coach Holger Osieck has apologised for an off-the-record sexist comment after Australia's 4-0 World Cup qualifying win over Jordan.

Speaking before the post-match media conference at Etihad Stadium, the German joked that a male Football Federation Australia official was pushing him around like a woman by telling him where to sit.

He then made a comment in Latin, which he said translated as "women should shut up in public".

"I say it to my wife at home, it is a private one, OK," added Osieck.

"And you record that one as well? I am going to be the darling of all Australian wives."

Osieck apologised on Wednesday before the team flew to Sydney for Tuesday's final qualifier against Iraq.

"To everyone who may feel offended by that, I offer a sincere apology," said Osieck.

"It was off the record, it was more a funny remark.

"It was nothing against any women or whatever. Definitely just a complete misunderstanding.

"... It was more meant as a joke to the journalist who asked me. There was no serious approach in it. One hundred per cent not."
