Manchester City-PSG referee Bjorn Kuipers has repeatedly insulted PSG players.
Ander Herrera was particularly up after the elimination of Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League. The reason ? Not the defeat of his team, but the behavior of the referee of the meeting, Bjorn Kuipers, who would have insulted the Parisian players.

“We talk about respect, respect with the referees. He said “fuck off” to Leandro Paredes. If we say that, we take three or four suspension matches ”, railed Herrera on RMC Sport, just after the final whistle.
“He told me ‘fuck you’ twice”
A version of the facts confirmed by Marco Verratti. “Yes, he insulted Paredes, and me too, let go of the Italian international. He told me “fuck you” twice. I never said “fuck you”, if I say “fuck you” I take 10 matches. Of course, I talk a lot with the referees, but I never said “fuck you”. “
For the moment, no image allows to confirm the accusations of the Parisians. Let us also add that Verratti made it clear that the elimination of PSG was “Not the referee’s fault”, whose overall performance was pretty decent. The red card inflicted on Angel Di Maria for a gesture of humor was not illogical (69th), and the damage was already done for PSG at this time of the double confrontation.
