Paris Saint-Germain midfielders Ander Herrera and Marco Verratti have both accused the referee of swearing at them during their Champions League semi-final second leg loss at the Etihad on Tuesday night.
PSG were reduced to ten men during the game after Angel Di Maria’s mindless stamp on Fernandinho and Ligue 1 champions confronted the referee on numerous occasions.
Herrera said after the match: ”The referee tonight said f**k off to Leandro Paredes. If we say that we get a 3 or 4 match ban.”
And Verratti also said: “The referee also told me ‘f*** you’ twice. For them it’s normal, if you say that it’s ten matches [ban]. I talk a lot to the referee but I don’t say that.”
