Ref in soup after kicking player

Ref in soup after kicking player

Carlos was running behind Chapron near the halfway line, and trying to catch up with play, when he inadvertently clipped the referee's heels.

The official stunned the stadium and those watching at home by kicking out at Carlos while still on the ground, in an incident reminiscent of David Beckham at the 1998 World Cup, before brandishing a second yellow card at the unfortunate player. It was, undoubtedly, the worst display of European top-flight refereeing this season.

The referee has been stood down from duty "until further notice", starting from his scheduled assignment for Wednesday's Ligue 1 match between Angers and Troyes, and will face a disciplinary hearing with the French football league (LFP).

"As a result, he informed the DTA (Technical Direction of the Arbitration) that he has prepared a complementary report to this effect for the LFP Disciplinary Committee".

Chapron rolled forward onto the turf and then, a split-second after tumbling, swiped his right leg at Carlos - like a player would do when making a cynical foul on an opponent.

"It's a gag", he told L'Equipe.

Television cameras capturing the incident showed Nantes president Waldemar Kita, who burst out laughing at the dismissal.

"What do you want me to say to you?" If I talk too much I will be called before the disciplinary commission. He gives a red card to a player who did nothing. It's amateurish. I've never seen anything like it. He should be suspended for six months. "We do that, we get a 10-match ban".

Nantes were stunned to go down to ten men after the accidental collision as PSG held on top win 1-0. Nantes sit in fifth, 20 points back.
