PSG could yet lose the Ligue 1 title they were celebrating last night after it became clear that the Parc des Princes side could be hit with a points deduction following the behaviour of sporting director Leonardo towards an official according to Yahoo Sports.

A disciplinary panel will meet this week to decide whether to hit the Parisian big spenders with a deduction following Leonardo’s shoving referee shoving Alexandre Castro in the tunnel after PSGs 1-1 draw with Valenciennes.

Leonardo reacted badly to Castro’s decision to send off Thiago Silva and compounded his earlier altercation by publicly criticizing the referee, stating;

“He’s a referee who has done 10 matches, this was his 10th, and he has given 48 yellows and five reds,” Leonardo told reporters following the match.

“This was a calm match and he has brought out seven yellows and one red. I don’t understand why we have a referee with nine matches for a big game like this. I don’t understand.”

PSG currently sit top of the table on 77 points, seven ahead of arch rivals Marseille with just two games to spare.
