Following events at the end of their Champions League quarterfinal game against Real Madrid in March, UEFA fined Paris Saint-Germain €8000 and suspended former sports director Leonardo for one game.
The penalties imposed by UEFA’s Control, Ethics, and Disciplinary Body are the result of incidents on March 9.
According to The Athletic, Al-Khelaifi and Leonardo rushed to the officials’ room at the Santiago Bernabeu to express their dissatisfaction with the award of Real’s opening goal, claiming that goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma had been fouled in the build-up.
PSG fell 3-2 on aggregate in the Champions League quarterfinal against Real Madrid in March, despite leading 2-0 with less than 30 minutes to go.
PSG were fined €16000 on June 2, but they appealed the ruling.
“The appeal made by Paris Saint-Germain is partially upheld,” UEFA said in a statement. As a result, the March 2 judgment of the UEFA Control, Ethics, and Disciplinary Body is changed as follows.
“Paris Saint-Germain will be fined €8000 for blocking public passage.” The CEBD had decided to punish Paris Saint-Germain €16000 for blocking public walkways, among other things.”
