“Anything that can be said against a black person is always a sign of racism”

The PSG-Basaksehir game was interrupted and suspended after the fourth referee’s allegedly racist comments against the Turkish club’s assistant coach.

During Wednesday’s press conference of the game between Standard Liège and Benfica, Jorge Jesus commented on the case of racism during the PSG-Basaksehir match.

“Do not know. Was not there. I don’t know what happened, what was said, what is said, but today racism is very fashionable.
