PSG Have Been Punished For A Late Start To The Second Period V Atalanta
UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body have fined the French club and given the coach a warning after the players came out late for the second half of the clash versus Atalanta.
UEFA are very strict on punctuality. The latest to find that out are Paris Saint-Germain who have been fined 30,000 euros for coming out slightly late for the second half of the match against Atalanta in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The European confederation also warned the coach, Thomas Tuchel, who they say was “responsible” for the late resumption.
The French club will have to be extra careful when it comes to the semi-final on the 18th against RB Leipzig. If they commit the same offence again, the coach could suffer a touchline ban.
It is not known whether Tuchel wanted to give some last minute instructions or whether it was because he was on crutches, but UEFA do not want a repeat.
