​Istanbul Basaksehir And PSG Players Walk Off During Champions League Clash After Accusing Fourth Official Of Racism

Istanbul Basaksehir and Paris Saint-Germain players walked off the pitch during their Champions League clash after accusing the Fourth Official of racism.

Istanbul assistant manager Pierre Webo was sent off after 14 minutes after words were exchanged with the fourth official, and a heated debate continued on the sidelines at the Parc des Princes.

With the game goalless, Basaksehir substitute Demba Ba claimed the official referred to Webo as 'the black guy'.

The video below shows Ba furiously remonstrating with a referee, stating: "You never say, 'This white guy.' Why when you mention a black guy, you have to say, 'this black guy.'"
