Sebastian Coltescu, fourth official of the Champions League match PSG – Istanbul Basaksehir, who was the center of the controversy for allegedly uttering a racist expression to a member of the Turkish team, returned to lead a Romanian League match.
46 days after that match at the Parc des Princes, Coltescu returned to the fields to referee the first division match of his country between Sepsi and Astra Giurgiu (4-1), although This absence was not due to any sanction, but because he could not perform the physical tests with the rest of his colleagues.
“I am happy for Sebastian Coltescu that he has returned. I know I work very hard to be at the level. For my part, well, although I do not agree very much with the penalty that he called us against. I’m glad he’s back. I don’t think what happened is normal”, said Eugen Beagoe, coach of the visiting team.
Coltescu’s expression to his compatriot Ovidiu Hategan, main referee of that ‘Champions’ match, was heard by Pierre Webó, Basaksehir’s second coach, and caused the stoppage of the match according to both templates, who resumed the match the next day. Coltescu will be defended in the file opened by UEFA by the Spanish lawyer Josep Vandellós.
