PSG president and coach may be sanctioned by UEFA for their behavior after the defeat to Real Madrid. Al-Khelaifi and Pochettino were not happy with the referees’ performance in the Champions League and let everyone know.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Mauricio Pochettino may be sanctioned by UEFA for their behavior and statements after the end of the match between Real Madrid and PSG in the Champions League.
It is that Al-Khelaifi, president of PSG, had an unsportsmanlike behavior in the box and in the anteroom of the locker room, especially in everything related to the referee.
According to reports, after the game, Nasser Al-Khelaifi angrily started looking for the referees in the locker room. ?

While the Argentine coach, Pochettino, may be punished for his words in the post-match press conference, where he questioned the decisions of the referees and the ghostly presence of the VAR.
From UEFA, and through its delegate, they have asked Real Madrid for the video of the security cameras in which it is seen how Al-Khelaifi enters the referee’s dressing room in a very bad way, shouting and even forcing the door so that it cannot be closed.
To further complicate matters, in the scene after the Champions League match, the PSG president threatened a Real Madrid employee who was recording everything that happened in the referee’s locker room, something that will not go unnoticed by UEFA either.

Al-Khelaifi, who has been held up by UEFA president Alexander Ceferin as an example to follow on several occasions, went beyond the limits once again: in the first leg of the Champions League clash against Real Madrid, he went with Leonardo – PSG’s sporting director – to the dressing room where the referees were and little is known about the match.
The president of Paris Saint-Germain may be banned from the stands for many matches, but we will not know until UEFA decides after an investigation.
On the other hand, the Mauricio Pochettino thing was more a matter of tension after an elimination that may eject him as PSG coach, but it has to do with Al-Khelaifi’s annoyance against referees.

Pochettino spoke at a press conference and referred to the play of the first goal suffered by PSG in which Karim Benzema commits a foul on Donnarumma that the referee could have charged:
“Real Madrid’s first goal changed the game. I wonder what the VAR is doing because there is a foul. It’s a shame, when you see the action, it’s a foul. It’s a shame the VAR when we see the action of the first goal. It is impossible not to talk about this gross error on the part of the referees. This cannot happen in 2022”
Had the Argentine coach not used words like embarrassment or a final phrase that it can’t happen, UEFA might have overlooked the statements, but now Pochettino faces – not only that he may be sacked from his position – but the desks of those who regulate the Champions League.
Pochettino ? “When you concede a goal like we do, the mindset changes.
The supporters carried their team, everything changed. It's incredible that the foul on Donnarumma was not seen by the VAR. I don't understand what they were doing."
