PSG president Al-Khelaifi blows fuse after Real Madrid triumph; had to be removed from office

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi blew a fuse after last night’s Champions League collapse at Real Madrid.

PSG blew a 2-0 aggregate lead as a second-half Karim Benzema hat-trick saw Real Madrid knock the Parisians out of the Champions League.

Having led and looked comfortable thanks largely to Kylian Mbappe, the Ligue 1 side capitulated once again when it counted, and again against Spanish opposition.

Movistar’s Monica Marchante reports Al-Khelaifi stormed downstairs from his box after the whistle and went seeking the officials’ dressing room to complain about something he didn’t like during the game.

Al-Khelaifi was left red faced, though, as he ended up storming into Mejia Davila’s office – a Real Madrid delegate. He then had to be removed with difficulty.

It’s thought that Al-Khelaifi was unhappy that PSG weren’t given a free-kick when Karim Benzema closed down Gianluigi Donnarumma for the first Real Madrid goal.
