PSG turn on referee after Lille fiasco

Paris Saint Germain’s players were involved in a furious altercation with the referee following their shock 5-1 defeat to Lille as their planned title celebrations descended into farce.

A single point at the Stade Pierre Mauroy would have sufficed for the champions to wrap up a second title in two years, but their night fell apart in spectacular fashion following a first half in which they lost three of their starting XI.

And after the game, the beaten champions engaged the referee in a heated exchange about decisions made during the defeat.

Qatari owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi could be heard yelling: “We need to raise the level of French football!” whilst Thomas Tuchel was heard saying to sporting director Henrique, “It’s the same guys that gave three penalties against us in the Guingamp game.”

He replied: “Yeah, I know, same one.”

Later, Draxler called out Benoit Bastien directly, demanding: “We have VAR so why don’t you use it? Explain that to me!”
