"We regret that this mistake has overshadowed the importance of the day and the permanent educational activity provided by AFA, expressing our most honest apologies to those who were affected by the publication, which in no way reflects the thinking of the Argentine Football Association, nor that of its President Claudio Tapia or any of its directors", it concluded. One of participants, Nacho Catullo, made note of a section of the course material that, translated loosely, was headlined "How to score with a Russian woman".
There was a course on Tuesday given by Russian language teacher Eduardo Pennisi at AFA's headquarters in Buenos Aires.
To make sure the rest of Messi's Argentina teammates have the same ease, the Argentina Football Association apparently distributed a manual that included a chapter entitled "What to do to have an opportunity with a Russian woman".More news: High court ruling permits sports betting in all states
"Russian girls are very special, it's all explained well there", Pennisi, an attorney and Russian language professor, told Clarin.
"Russian ladies like men who take initiative", said another passage.
One other a part of the chapter tells the boys travelling to Russia: "Don't ask silly questions on intercourse". Do not worry. There are many lovely women in Russian Federation and not all of them are for you.More news: Deadpool Tries Out His Best Trump Jokes During Stephen Colbert's Monologue
"For Russians, sex is something very private and not discussed in public". Do not ask stupid questions about sex.
"Normally Russians girls pay attention to the important things". Maybe they want it too, but they are people who want to feel important and unique, ' the handbook added. If you are not confident, then you need to talk to different girls, so as not to be shy upon meeting a Russian girl.
It says: "Of course you will find girls who are concerned about material things, how much money you have, if you are handsome".More news: Match fixing: SAFF wants Al Mirdasi out of W/cup
"The teacher in charge of the course selected information to give to the assistants and, unfortunately at the moment of the printing of the same, due to an involuntary error, a text was included that was never part of the training. We regret that the error would have obscured the importance of the day's lesson and the permanent educational activities given by AFA, and expressing our sincerest apologies to those affected by the publication, which in no way reflects the thoughts of the Argentine Football Association or its president Claudio Tapia or any of of his directions".
