The UEFA Champions League soccer match between Paris Saint-Germain (Paris Saint-Germain) and Basaksehir was postponed one day when the players left the field after claiming that Romanian fourth referee Sebastian Kultesco used a racist term when identifying the assistant coach.
Turkey’s players were angered after assistant coach Pierre Weibo received a red card by Romanian referee Ovidio Hatijan in Parc des Princes, saying Koltisco used a racist term to describe Weibo, who is from Cameroon, before he was fired.
Demba Ba, the substitute in Başakşehir, demanded that the fourth referee explain himself, while Paris Saint-Germain players Neymar and Kylian Mbappe demanded an explanation. “You are my racist,” Basaksehir coach Okan Porok told Kultesko.
The score was 0-0 when the accident occurred around 14 minutes into the game in Paris on Tuesday (Wednesday New Zealand time).

UEFA, the European Football Confederation, said the match would resume on Wednesday evening (New Zealand time) with the presence of new officials.
After an incident that occurred tonight in the UEFA Champions League between Paris Saint-Germain and Istanbul in Basaksehir, UEFA decided – after a discussion with the two clubs – exceptionally well that the remaining minutes of the match be played tomorrow with a new team from UEFA said in Wednesday statement (New Zealand time).
“A comprehensive investigation into the accident will be opened immediately,” she added.
TV footage captured the exchange between the fourth referee and the referee, in which Kultesko told Hatigan that Weibo should be reprimanded for his behavior on the sidelines.
“Go and give it [the red card] To black, this is not possible [tolerable]Go know it, go check it out, the black is there, “Koltisco allegedly said in Romanian about Weibo.
Weibo was furious and heard repeating alleged racial slander at least six times, as he sought an explanation from Koltisco.
Moments later, Pa got out of the bench and stood in front of Koltisco and said, “Why when you mention a black man, you have to say, ‘This black man? “
During the boycott, Basaksehir posted a message on Twitter against the backdrop of UEFa with the message “No to Racism”. Paris Saint-Germain retweeted it.
Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnell Kempembe, who was on the field during the match, also posted the message on his Twitter account.
Seven years ago, Hatigan was responsible for a match between CSKA Moscow and Manchester City when black City players were racially assaulted.
Then City captain Yaya Toure directed referee Hatigan at the fans making monkey noises at the black English club players.
Michel Platini, the president of UEFA at the time, requested an internal investigation involving the referee to examine why guidelines were not being followed in response to incidents of discrimination during matches.
