A female footballer has said sex before games is “normal” – but it is often “prohibited” for men.

Professional footballers are required to be at the peak of their physical fitness in the modern game, with strict diets keeping them in shape

This also means no distractions, with one Premier League side releasing a guide this season for new players on sex.

But CSKA Moscow Women’s goalkeeper Elvira Todua has claimed there is a different approach to bedroom activities in the women’s game.

Speaking on YouTube channel Comment Show , the shot-stopper said: “It is normal that women can [have sex before a game] while, for men, I know that many coaches have prohibited it.”

The Russian goalkeeper has been with the club for the last four seasons while making 100 appearances for her country.

And the 35-year-old said the club give the women’s team are given support if they get pregnant – but it is not the case for all teams.

Todua added: “Our contracts stipulate that the club is obliged to pay in case of maternity.

“We have that clause in our contracts at CSKA, but it is not like that everywhere.

“I know that, in other clubs, contracts are rescinded in the case of pregnancy.”

Sex has been an issue in football that coaches have tried to combat in different ways over the years.

Former England coach Fabio Capello banned bedroom activities for players with their other halves during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
