Al-Khelaifi loses it: He stormed downstairs and went to the referees' dressing room

Nasser Al-Khelaifi's anger boiled over at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night after Paris Saint-Germain's latest European collapse, blowing 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.

As per Movistar's Monica Marchante, 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.

Adblock test (Why?)
