Last night, the French Football Disciplinary Commision announced that Zlatan will be suspended four Ligue 1-games due to his remarks about the referee and the French league after the game against Bordeaux on 15 March.


Today PSG released an official statement, where they express critique against the commision's decision, both because of Zlatan's positive impact on the French league's reputation and status as well as in the manner his comments were documented (by a tv-team).


Paris Saint-Germain official statement 10 April 2015:

"The Club deplores the severity with which its player has been sanctioned, given his immense contribution to the image of French football, both in France and internationally. The Club would also highlight, in this respect, that the player's only hearings at the Disciplinary Commission have been requested after supplementary reports were made following viewing of images after the act.
It is, once again, after viewing images filmed by a television crew, that the Commission decided to impose a disproportionate sanction on the player; one that denies Paris Saint-Germain a key player during this crucial period of the season and its quest for domestic success.
The enthusiasm and total support of our loyal fans will strengthen the determination and motivation of our players whose objectives remain to try and win more trophies this term. Nothing will prevent us from writing a new winning chapter in the history of our club."
