Paris Saint-Germain has denounced all manifestations of bigotry after the postponement of their Champions League match with Istanbul Basaksehir.
After a lengthy delay, Paris Saint-game Germain’s against Istanbul Basaksehir was called off after an incident involving a fourth official.
Shortly after their players walked off the pitch, the Twitter account of Basaksehir posted a message claiming Coltescu’s assistant coach of the club, Pierre Webo, had been subjected to racist conduct.
Turkish side also shared a picture saying ‘No To Racism’, which was retweeted by the official PSG account, and the Ligue 1 champions have now followed up with a message of their own.
“Tonight’s match between PSG and Istanbul Basaksehir was interrupted after 13 minutes of play following racist remarks by the fourth official to a member of the Basaksehir club staff,” PSG’s official account tweeted.
“All forms of racism go against the values held by Paris Saint-Germain, the club’s chairman, staff and players.”
