In Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League match between Paris Saint-Germain and Newcastle United, a rather questionable penalty was awarded to the English team late in the match, allowing PSG to equalise.

After the match, Eddie Howe, the “Magpies” strategist, did not hide his disappointment, and it seems that the referees’ mistake was recognized by UEFA itself.

It was announced on Wednesday that Tomasz Kwiatkowski, the referee who worked at the VAR monitor in the match between PSG and Newcastle, has been suspended from the same role in the meeting between Real Sociedad and Salzburg.

It is interesting that the final decision, even after the VAR review, belongs to the field referee, who was one of the best referees in Europe, Szymons Marciniaks.
