PSG honors Turkish Medipol Basaksehir assistant manager Pierre Webo for standing against racism
French top tier soccer power house Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Wednesday honored the assistant manager of the Turkish club Medipol Basaksehir after he was victim of alleged racism during Tuesday suspended European Champions League, UCL, clash between the two sides in Paris.
PSG Chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, in a video post by the Turkish club, handed Pierre Webo, an autographed PSG jersey, Anadalu news agency reports.
Webo, a former Cameroonian soccer player, made the headlines Tuesday after he leveled charges against Romanian and fourth referee of the match Sebastian Coltescu for making a racist remark about him during the match. The match was suspended during the first half.
Basaksehir players refused to continue the match and were backed by the home side which also walked off the pitch. The European football governing body, UEFA, rescheduled the math on Wednesday. PSG trashed the Turkish 5-1 to make it to the knockout stage.
