The Ligue de Football Professional( LFP) announced on Thursday that Paris St. Germain players Randal Kolo Muani, Ousmane Dembele, Achraf Hakimi, and Layvin Kurzawa have been given one-match suspensions for their involvement in offensive chants.
PSG supporters were overheard celebrating with homophobic chants directed at Marseille during last month’s Ligue 1 match at the Parc des Princes against Olympique de Marseille.
PSG players allegedly engaged in offensive chanting, according to French sports publication L’Equipe.
The LFP decided to close the Auteuil stand at the Parc des Princes for two games, one of which was suspended, and handed the players one-match suspensions that went into effect on October 10.
The PSG stated in a statement that they would not appeal,” The club regrets that the Disciplinary Commission has chosen an excessive and collective measure, likely to undermine the work of dialogue and prevention undertaken by the Club with associations, institutions, and fans.”
