Why PSG supporters are fiercely campaigning for Manchester United ouster from the Champions League

Manchester United will be facing a possible fine or ban if what is going around about shirt printing will be thing to go by and the reason as to why PG supporters are following the matter with great passion is a reason that cuts across board.

It’s easy to understand why Paris Saint-Germain supporters will still be seething following their agonising defeat to Manchester United on Wednesday night last week.

The manner in which the French champions threw away another comfortable lead in the Champions League reopened the sore wounds inflicted by Barcelona two years ago.

Although this collapse wasn’t as mighty as the infamous thrashing at the Camp Nou, the late VAR penalty review against Presnel Kimpembe proved just as devastating.

And although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are ready to learn their last eight opponents in the Champions League draw next Friday morning, PSG supporters have launched a campaign for them to be booted out of Europe.

That is because a section of PSG supporters believe United deserve to be kicked from the competition after supposedly breaching Uefa’s rules regarding shirt printing.

The controversy arose when pictures of Mason Greenwood went viral showing his shirt was actually printed with PSG’s own player numbering on the back of it and bearing their logo.

An Instagram fan account called ‘Le Guide de PSG’ suggested United should be kicked out of the competition for breaking Uefa rules regarding Greenwood’s number.

The post has been ‘liked’ almost 3,000 times by a number of supporters who appear to agree with the campaign.

Not only would such a sanction be extremely harsh, but according to Uefa rules this wouldn’t even be a violation. Uefa ruling states club’s lettering and numbers must fit within specified dimensions, which these did.

Are you in support that United be sanctioned for breaking the rules?
