The French Professional Football League (LFP) officially announced the results of its disciplinary committee on the 6th (Korean time). It was decided that PSG would ban key players from playing and close the stands at Parc des Princes Auteuil.
PSG defeated Olympique Marseille 4-0 in the 8th round of the 2023-24 French Ligue 1 season held at Parc des Princes, its home stadium in Paris, France, on the 25th of last month.
French representative clubs faced off. The winner was PSG. They took the lead with Ashraf Hakimi’s first goal in the 8th minute of the first half and an additional goal from Langdal Kolo Muani in the 37th minute of the first half. The second half also had the same trend. Gonzalo Hamus, who replaced Kylian Mbappe, scored the first goal in the 2nd minute of the second half, and reached a peak with multiple goals in the 44th minute of the second half. It was a very valuable victory for PSG. 토토사이트
However, controversy arose after the game ended. PSG players, inspired by their victory in the rivalry, were captured shouting insulting slogans at Marseille fans. The LFP handed one-match bans to Mouani, Hakimi, Ousmane Dembele and Raivin Kurzawa. Additionally, it was decided to close the Parc des Princes Auteuil stands for one game because PSG fans shouted homophobic slogans. It has been reported that spectator seating was closed for two games, but one game was reduced.
According to the British public broadcaster BBC, Mouani, Hakimi, Dembele and Kurzawa apologized for their actions and encouraged the victory. “We are well aware of the impact our actions and words have on the fans. “This is especially true for young children watching soccer. From now on, we will strive to fulfill our obligation to set an example,” he apologized.
It’s PSG on a windy day. After the Marseille match, they drew with Clermont and then went on to play in the UEFA Champions League (UCL), but suffered a humiliating 1-4 loss away to Newcastle United. Both offense and defense were disappointing. 180 million euros (about 256.1 billion won) for Mbappe, 80 million euros (about 113.8 billion won) for Muani, 60 million euros (about 85.3 billion won) for Dembele, and 50 million euros (about 71.1 billion won) for Hamus. Everyone was silent. The four players on the front line had an estimated value of over 500 billion won, but they failed to even attempt a threatening effective shot.
The same goes for defense. Captain Marquinhos made a fatal mistake and conceded the first goal. Partner Milan Skriniar also did not look like a veteran. Soccer statistics media ‘Sofa Score’ selected the two players as worst players by giving them 5.8 and 5.9 points, respectively.
Losing manager Enrique said: “These games are difficult as a manager. We started very well. We coped with the pressure put on by Newcastle and Dembele had an early chance. To be honest, even if we congratulate Newcastle, I think the score is unfair (our performance). “Compared to this, I think 1-4 is harsh,” he said, adding that he was unlucky. PSG is in urgent need of a rebound, but bad news has occurred with the departure of Dembele, Muani, Kurzawa, and Hakimi.
