Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the President of Paris Saint-German Football Club stormed the referee’s dressing room and broke equipment after his side was knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid yesterday.
Al-Khelaifi was furious with the officials’ decisions leading to the first Kareem Benzema’s goal.
The enraged PSG chief felt Benzema should have been called for a foul on goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in the build-up to the goal.
Madrid overturned a two-goal deficit in the last-16 second leg, with Karim Benzema’s second-half hat-trick sealing a 3-2 aggregate victory for Madrid.
The referee documented the incident in the report submitted at the end of the match.
He wrote, “Al-Khelaifi behaved aggressively and tried to enter the referee’s dressing room. When the referee asked them to leave, the president hit a piece of the assistant’s equipment, breaking it.”
it was also gathered that a Real Madrid employee recorded the incident and will consider sending the footage to UEFA to study for possible punishment.
