UEFA laying down the law
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have both been charged by UEFA following their Champions League clash on Tuesday.
The two sides took part in a hotly contested clash at Old Trafford which saw PSG come out 2-0 victors.
Though, the game wasn’t without its drama.
While Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s first loss was no doubt big, there were several other talking points.
Paul Pogba was sent off in the second half of the game, while Angel Di Maria took take aim at fans following PSG’s first goal.
It wasn’t just on the pitch where there was trouble either.
