Champions League racism could force UEFA to revise disciplinary code.

 A racist comment from Sebastian Coltescu, the fourth official of the game between Paris Saint-Germain and Istanbul Basaksehir, caused outrage in the players of both teams and led the clubs to abandon the Champions League match on Tuesday (8). 

In the 13th minute, referee Ovidiu Hategan sent off Cameroonian Pierre Webó, technical assistant to the Turkish team.

For the first time in history, players from both teams came together to protest against a racist referee who triggered a problem with the regulations.

"Sport needs to evolve, integrate, bring together and welcome. Any discriminatory act deserves a quick and strong response, like that of PSG and Istanbul players. It will pressure the sports movement to act more harshly against prejudice", says the journalist, lawyer and columnist for Lei em Campo , Andrei Kampff. UEFA also tried to dissuade players from restarting the match.

He moved Coltescu to the VAR booth and replaced him with an arbitrator who was in the video check booth. But it was not enough for the game to continue.
