German-born Osieck, when arriving for his post-match press conference on Tuesday, remarked to an organiser "you push me around like my wife".

He then said to the assembled media that there was a saying which translates as "women should shut up in public".

On Wednesday, Osieck is quoted by the Guardian as saying: "I got information it created waves. That was not the intent. To everyone offended, I sincerely apologise.

"There was no seriousness in it. If my wife knows I'll probably be in big trouble when I get home."

The Football Federation Australia added in a statement to Guardian Australia: "the comments made by Holger Osieck do not reflect the views of the FFA".
