PSG’s 1-0 win over Nantes on Sunday was overshadowed by an incident involving Ligue 1 referee Tony Chapron, who appeared to kick Nantes player, Diego Carlos, off the ball, before showing the defender a red card.
In the last minute of the game, PSG was advancing up the pitch on a counter attack when Carlos seemed to accidentally cross paths with Chapron. The referee stumbled and fell to the turf, before appearing to swing a kick with his right boot at the Nantes player.
My first thoughts were…did that really happen ??
After the kicking incident, referee Chapron gave Carlos a second yellow card, before blowing for full-time three minutes later.
What the heck was he thinking ??
The ref has apparently been shown a red card by the French FA and is suspended until further notice.
