The UEFA campaign against racism is more relevant than ever after the events at the Park on Tuesday evening.



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.
