The Champions League clash between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Istanbul Basaksehir was suspended in the first half. Reports allege that one of the officials made an offensive remark when referring to an assistant manager of the Turkish club, Pierre Webo.
After the alleged incident, nearby cameras caught Basaksehir striker Demba Ba accusing the official of using unacceptable language.

Ba was heard saying: “(When you mention a white guy) you never say ‘this white guy’, you say ‘this guy’. So when you mention a black guy, do you have to say ‘this black guy’?”
Following the suspension of the game, the Basaksehir team tweeted a picture saying “No To Racism,” thus confirming that some sort of incident happened during the match.
