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.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
