The European Football Association “UEFA” announced the penalty for the Paris Saint-Germain player, after receiving a direct red card in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City last week.
Senegalese player Idrissa Gaye, the player of Paris Saint-Germain, was dismissed in the 77th minute, due to a violent intervention on City star Ilkay Gendogan.
The Senegalese international had already missed the second leg match on Wednesday at the Etihad Stadium due to the automatic suspension of one match, but the UEFA Disciplinary Committee raised the penalty for two matches “due to violent interference that puts the opponent at risk.”
Thus, the player’s participation this season in the Champions League ends, as he will not be able to participate in the final if his team qualifies for it.
UEFA also punished Paris Saint-Germain with a fine of 30,000 euros due to the delay in the start of the first-leg match, which it hosted on the grounds of its “Princes’ Garden.”
