#PSGIBFK: Demba Ba Confronts Official In Heated Exchange Over Alleged Racist Comment In PSG Vs Istanbul Basaksehir (Video)


A video making rounds on social media has showed the moment Demba Ba responded to the racial slur, as he wondered why the match official had to refer to the colour of a black person.

PSG and Basaksehir players walked off pitch, and their Champions League game is now suspended, over alleged racism by a referee.

Istanbul Basaksehir striker Demba Ba confronted the match official who allegedly made a racist comment in the Turkish side’s Champions League clash.

What really happened?

Istanbul assistant manager Pierre Webo, who was a Cameroon international, was sent off by the referee before claiming that fourth official Sebastian Coltescu had used a racist term against him.

The club’s players showed solidarity with their assistant boss by walking off the pitch, with PSG players also heading down the tunnel.

However, that was before Ba took matters into his own hands and confronted the Romanian official for his alleged comments towards Webo.

The 35-year-old former Newcastle and Chelsea man said: “You never say this white guy, you say this guy. So why when you mention me […] listen to me, why when you mention a black guy, you have to say this black guy?”
