On Tuesday night, Istanbul Basaksehir striker, Demba Ba, confronted fourth official, Sebastian Coltescu, over an alleged racist slur during his side’s abandoned Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain.
The match was abandoned after players from both sides walked off the pitch, alleging Coltescu used a racial slur towards Pierre Webo, the Basaksehir’s assistant coach before he was sent off.
The former Cameroon international had to be dragged away as he repeatedly yelled, “Why did you say n****?” with the rest of the Basaksehir coaches and substitutes in an uproar.
However, in a video which emerged online, Demba Ba, a former Chelsea forward, confronted the official on the touchline, saying: “You never say: “This white guy.” You say: “This guy.”
“So why when you mention a black guy do you have to say: “This black guy”? But seriously, I don’t get it!”.
Meanwhile, UEFA had rescheduled the Champions League game between PSG and Istanbul Basaksehir after it was suspended on Tuesday night.
The game will be played with a different set of officials on Wednesday, with UEFA promising a full investigation.
