PSG Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma Receives Bizarre Yellow Card In 92nd Minute

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma received perhaps the most bizarre yellow card of the season against Marseille.

PSG won 'Le Classique' 2-1, with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe on target in the first half either side of an equaliser from Duje Caleta-Car.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are now 15 points clear of their nearest title rivals after 32 games and are set to regain their Ligue One crown.

But the latest win featured a strange moment from No.1 goalkeeper Donnarumma, who was shown a yellow card for his stoppage time antics.

Italy's Euro 2020 hero rushed out of his goal in the 92nd minute to snuff out a Marseille attack and did so successfully.

Yet then when he had the ball, the former AC Milan man decided against passing to a teammate or even smashing the ball up the pitch.

Instead, under minimal pressure, he inplexicably kicked the ball out of play and against the advertising boards.


When the ball came back to him, Donnarumma started running away with the ball down the flank and was quite clearly trying to run down the clock.

Francois Letexier was well aware of what Donnarumma was trying to do and brandished the yellow card for time-wasting.

It was certainly an interesting game for Donnarumma as he was at fault for Marseille's leveller.

The 23-year-old made the decision to come out and claim the corner but completely missed it - the ball ending up in the back of the net after a scramble.
