Paris (dpa) – DFB integration officer Cacau described the behavior of the pros when the Champions League game was abandoned in Paris as “appropriate and exemplary”.
“When I see and hear the scene again, it will be very close to me,” said the 39-year-old ex-VfB Stuttgart pro on Sky. It is shocking that the alleged racist insult came from the referee. “This is a new level, if you can put it that way,” said Cacau.
Due to the alleged racist insult by the fourth official against Basaksehir’s Cameroonian assistant coach Pierre Webo, both the Istanbul and host Paris Saint-Germain left the field on Tuesday evening. “What remains for me is exemplary behavior from the people and a clear signal,” said Cacau.
After lengthy discussions in the catacombs, the match between French football champions Paris Saint-Germain and Basaksehir from Istanbul was canceled. The match continues on December 9 with new referees.
