Indian Super League side Odisha FC were forced to apologise after manager Stuart Baxter made disgusting comments about rape.

Odisha were 1-0 losers against Jamshedpur on Monday, with Mobashir Rahman scoring the only goal of the game five minutes before half-time.

Late in the game the hosts felt they should have had the chance to equalise from the penalty spot, when TP Rehenesh looked to have tripped Diego Mauricio in the box.

The referee felt otherwise and turned down the appeals from the home side, clearly leaving their manager, Baxter, upset at the loss.

Following the match, the 67-year-old former South Africa national team coach claimed that his players would have had to 'get raped' in the box in order to have won a penalty.

The club took their time to respond to the shocking post match interview and, despite calls for his sacking on social media, they took no action against the manager.

They did release a statement later, saying, "The Club is appalled at the comments made by Head Coach, Stuart Baxter during the post-match interview today. It is completely unacceptable whatever the context and does not reflect the values of the club.

"We, at Odisha FC, unreservedly apologize and the club management will handle this matter internally."

The loss leaves the club bottom of the table after 14 games, with just one win and five draws so far, and are five points behind East Bengal, the side above them.
