UEFA sanctions Leonardo but turns a blind eye to Al-Khelaifi

The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has sanctioned Leonardo Nascimento de Araujoalready former sports director of Paris Saint-Germain, with a match for the incidents that occurred during the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Real Madrid (3-1), while the president of the French club, Nasser Al-Khelaifihas not received any penalty for the facts.

Thus, the Brazilian leader, who at the end of last month was dismissed by the French entity, was sanctioned for violating “the disciplinary rules and sports conduct” by going down to the referees’ locker room, commanded by the Dutch Danny Makkelie, after the match played on March 9 at the Santiago Bernabéu (3-1) to question his decisions. Next to him was Al-Khelaifi, who received no penalty.

According to the arbitration record of that match, both showed “a aggressive behavior and tried to enter the referees’ locker room”, and the president of the Parisian club “hit the flag of one of the attendeesbreaking it.”
