Bucharest (AP) – Romanian referee Sebastian Coltescu, who is suspected of racism, did not apologize on social media for his behavior in the Champions League match Paris Saint-Germain against Basaksehir Istanbul, contrary to the contrary.
The Romanian Football Association announced that the fourth official, who was appointed on Tuesday for the Champions League game in Paris, had no accounts on social media.
The German news agency had previously reported on Wednesday, citing an alleged Twitter account under the name of Coltescu, that he had apologized to him over alleged racism allegations.
Due to Coltescu’s alleged racist insult against Basaksehir’s Cameroonian assistant coach Pierre Webo, both Istanbul and host Paris Saint-Germain left the field on Tuesday evening. After lengthy discussions in the catacombs, the game was canceled and should be continued with new referees on Wednesday evening.
