In the words of referee Sebastian Kolcescu, who was a referee in the group stage match of the Champions League between PSG and Istanbul, UEFA found no proof of racism.

After Kolcescu used the term ‘black’ against Istanbul coach Pierre Webo, the match was called off in the 14th minute. The players declined to proceed with the game. It was not until the next day that the match was played and ended in a 5-1 victory for the Parisians.

UEFA’s investigation into the episode has been concluded, according to ProSport, and Kolcescu is not going to be punished. It is alleged that UEFA finds in the words of the referee no proof of bias.

The panel found that Kolcescu used the wording “that black” to assist referee-in-chief Ovidiu Hategan to identify the Istanbul coach using video footage from the game.

In Romanian, the word ‘this black’ has no negative meaning or negative connotations, according to linguistic expertise, and the term used can not be considered offensive. Besides, anti-racist groups also use the term “black”.

It is noted that the English word “negro” should not be taken to mean the Romanian word “negru”.
