The clubs chief was furious with the officials decisions as his side crashed out of the Champions League

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi stormed the referees dressing room and broke equipment after his side were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid, according to the referees report.

Madrid overturned a two-goal deficit in the last-16 second leg, with Karim Benzemas second-half hat-trick sealing a 3-2 aggregate victory for Madrid.

It was the first of Benzemas three goals which enraged PSG, who felt Benzema should have been called for a foul on goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in the build-up.

Al-Khelaifis outburst was documented in the referees report, which also stated that PSG director of football Leonardo was alongside him.

Al-Khelaifi and Leonardo “behaved aggresively and tried to enter the referees dressing room. When the referee asked them to leave, the president hit a piece of the assistants equipment, breaking it.”

According to Marca, Al-Khelaifis behaviour was recorded by a Real Madrid employee, who will likely send the footage to UEFA to study for a possible punishment.

“The decision on Donnarumma is not fair,” Leonardo said after the game to Canal+. “The foul exists and it is clear. Its impossible not to consult the VAR.

“But Im not looking for excuses. Well have to see what we did.”
