Steaua Bucharest owner Gigi Becali said he would quit football if he was forced to introduce a women's team at the Romanian club.

'It's against human nature' – Steaua owner Becali on women's football

Steaua Bucharest owner Gigi Becali labelled women's football "against human nature" and added females were "created to be beautiful to attract the opposite sex" in an astonishing rant.

The outspoken Becali made the comments after being asked how he would react if UEFA ever forced him to create a women's team at the Romanian club.

Phoning in to Pro TV, the 60-year-old told the Ora Exacta program: "I'll quit football! You can't do things against God's will. [It's more so] aligning to Satan's ideas. How can a woman play football?

"She isn't built for playing football. Her body isn't made for football. It's dangerous ... it's against human nature!

"The female was created to be beautiful, to attract the opposite sex. We are affecting women by letting them play football or by allowing them to box.

"They should play handball, volleyball, basketball, but not aggressive sports."
