Paris (AFP) – Paris Saint-Germain have sent a letter of complaint to UEFA about the referee who oversaw their spectacular collapse to Barcelona, accusing him of ruining their Champions League campaign.
The Spanish champions’ historic win was overshadowed by a series of controversial calls from German referee Deniz Aytekin and he awarded them two penalties on the way to a 6-1 hammering last week to surge into the quarter-finals.
Showing anigh-on admirable refusal to let it lie, PSG have reportedly cobbled together a list of all the mistakes made by the referee during their Champions League second-leg capitulation against Barcelona and submitted it to UEFA.
According to Le Parisien (who claim to have gleaned their information fromMARCA andGazzetta dello Sport), PSG's top brass have compiled a list of what they deem to be every error madeby referee Deniz Aytekin throughout the duration of the match.
Franck Ribery loves life without Louis. And it starts to show on the pitch. One
of the best games of the French winger in a while. Robbery sounds great on paper. In reality it was
usually about Arjen Robben cutting inside and scoring decisive goals, while Ribery was doubled,
frustrated and ineffective.
