“Fuck you!” PSG footballers were outraged by the boorish behavior of the referee
What punishment would a judge face if he was proven guilty?
Both of the Champions League semi-finals between PSG and Manchester City were not without scandal. In the first meeting, the player of the Parisians Marco Verratti in a rude form turned to the head coach of “City” Josep Guardiola.

The return leg in Manchester was also nervous for PSG. The guests conceded on all counts, after which they began to be rude and argue with the referee. In one of the skirmishes Bjorn Kuipers, the chief referee of the match, sent the Parisian player to hell.
According to two PSG players at once – Ander Herrera and Marco Verratti – during the second half, Kuipers rudely communicated with the guests’ players several times.
“Everyone talks about respect for the judges, but Kuipers sent Paredes. We, the players, would have been given three or four matches of disqualification for that, ”Ander Herrera was indignant after the game. Verratti stated that Kuipers had sent him as well. “He told me twice:” Fuck you! ” I answered him the same. Of course, I argue a lot with the judges, but this has not happened yet, ”admitted Marco.
Leonardo, the sports director of PSG, called Kuypers’ such an attitude towards football players a “shame”. At the same time, the Parisians have practically no complaints about refereeing. “The fact that we lost is not the judge’s fault,” added Verratti in turn. Parisian head coach Mauricio Pochettino stated that he had not heard such words from Kuypers. However, the Argentine specialist is sure that UEFA is obliged to investigate this fact.
At the same time, the City player Riyadh Marez believes that the Parisians are to blame themselves. They were losing, because of which they began to break down on the “townspeople” and too actively argued with the referee. Kuipers showed the PSG players four yellow and one red cards. “They lost their composure and started being rude. After the removal it was already easier, ”said Marez.
What can threaten Kuypers
Usually the players insult the referees, not the other way around. There are not many cases when a referee was disqualified for his words. The latter happened this season, when PSG and the Turkish Bashakshehir met. Then the Romanian judge Sebastian Kolzescu found himself at the center of a racist scandal.

Koltseska was suspended until the end of the season, but was later acquitted. If Kuypers is proven guilty, he could also face disqualification.
