TFF President Nihat Özdemir made a statement on Haber Global screens as soon as he made a racism against Başakşehir Assistant Coach Pierre Webo by the 4th referee in the Paris Saint Germain match and said, “We will follow the issue.”
Özdemir continued his statements as follows:
An unwanted event. For years, FIFA AND UEFA have been focusing on such events. Fortunately, we have not encountered such an event in our country until now. But today we see that maybe a four of UEFA referees, who are the elite referees, directed the match, while the 4th referee excluded Webo, the assistant coach, with an attitude that sheds light on racism. They can leave it out of the game, but racist rhetoric is not acceptable. The players there reacted to this situation. As far as we have followed, the referee has been dismissed. We are discussing the situation with the managers.
We will follow up on criminal sanctions. We are unconditionally against racism and discrimination. The important thing here is to distinguish the perpetrator and give a penalty. Here is the 4th referee who committed the crime. I want the team to take the field now. You finish the match without the 4th referee.
