A little over a month and a half after the match stopped PSG-Basaksehir at the Parc des Princes in the Champions League (postponed to the next day and finally won by PSG, 5-1), Pierre Achille Webo, assistant coach of the Turkish formation, returned, this Tuesday, in France Football on this painful episode. The players of both teams had, in fact, left the field after the fourth Romanian referee was accused of racism against the Cameroonian.
“I have a feeling of rage, I felt discriminated against,” said the former player of Osasuna and Fernerbahçe. He believes he has not had a strong response to the words of the fourth referee and hopes that heavy penalties will fall. “I want to see sanctions happen because it takes a first time. Very strong penalties must be taken, otherwise it will keep repeating itself and no one will remember what happened. “
“We had a lot of pressure from UEFA in the locker room”
In addition to his grievances against the fourth referee, Pierre Webo is also angry with UEFA, which he says has not taken the issue seriously. “We had a lot of pressure from UEFA in the locker room,” he says. They came to see some players saying we had to resume, otherwise there would be no time to play again with the tight schedules and the pandemic. “
The 39-year-old Cameroonian international (58 capes, 19 goals) welcomes the attitude of PSG during this evening. “We should not take lightly the fact that Neymar, Mbappé and all these world-class players are reacting as they did for this cause, he insists. Saying: If it happened, we don’t continue, that’s what makes the greatness of this day. Congratulations once again to Leonardo, the president of PSG and the players who played a very big role. “
Like Istanbul striker Demba Ba, Pierre Webo, on the other hand, criticized the attitude of former PSG coach Thomas Tuchel, whose officialization of arrival at Chelsea is imminent. ” The coach (Editor’s note: Thomas Tuchel)he did what he did. There was a lack of solidarity on his part. “
