As has been the case in recent years, PSG could pay a high price for the great joy of its supporters following the victory against AC Milan on Wednesday night at the Parc des Princes.
PSG: UEFA Threatens Paris Saint-Germain After Victory Against AC Milan
Organized by the Collectif Ultras Paris, a massive tifo featuring the French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo shooting at an AC Milan target led to a spectacular entrance at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night during the clash between Paris Saint-Germain. However, this performance did not sit well with UEFA due to the use of pyrotechnic devices that lit up the Auteuil stand for an extended period.
According to its regulations, the European body is expected to penalize the Parisian club with a hefty fine. Nevertheless, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and the PSG executives are not at odds with the Ultras. According to information obtained by the newspaper L’Équipe, the club was aware of the action the CUP was preparing for the reception of the Rossoneri. PSG is therefore ready to bear the financial risk without any qualms. But that’s not all.
PSG Hit Twice by UEFA?
Indeed, the Collectif Ultras Paris (CUP), gathered in the Auteuil Stand, displayed a magnificent tifo in tribute to Jean-Paul Belmondo, one of the founders of Paris Saint-Germain, who passed away two years ago. However, what may cause problems for the Rouge et Bleu in addition to the pyrotechnic devices are the numerous politically themed banners displayed by the CUP, according to RMC Sport. This is forbidden and strongly punished by UEFA.
The regulations of the European body stipulate a fine of 500 euros for each ignited smoke bomb. PSG supporters ignited many of them. The newspaper L’Équipe confirms this trend by explaining that while the display of pro-Palestinian banners, considered non-provocative by the continental body, will not result in any sanctions, PSG will indeed be penalized. The capital club is “facing disciplinary action.”
