In Romania too, it does not work.
Romanian Sports Minister Ionut Stoe reacted to racist remarks by Sebastian Coltescu, 4th referee in the match between Paris Saint-Germain and Istabul Basaksehir.
The latter, he told the DigiTv channel, “strongly condemns any comments that can be interpreted as racist, xenophobic or discriminatory.
I apologize on behalf of Romanian sport for this unfortunate incident, which does not represent us.
The match was interrupted and postponed to Wednesday 6:55 p.m. after players from both teams joined the locker room in protest.
The referee of the match has been changed for the second kick-off, which will be given by Dutchman Danny Makkelie.
