Ander Herrera says referee told PSG teammate Paredes to f**k off in Man City loss

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Ander Herrera claims his teammate Leandro Paredes was told to "f*** off" by the referee during their Champions League semi final defeat to Manchester City.

The Parisians lost the second leg 2-0 in Manchester, and went out 4-1 on aggregate, as City take their place in the final in Istanbul later this month.

Herrera, a former Manchester United player, alleged that Paredes was on the receiving end of foul language from referee Bjorn Kuipers, who sent off Angel Di Maria late in the game.

"The referee said 'f*ck off' to Leandro Paredes, if we say that, we are out for four games," Herrera complained to RMC Sport.

"He also told me 'f*ck you' a few times," added fellow PSG midfielder Marco Verratti, per RMC Sport.

"If I say 'f*ck you', I am out for 10 games. Of course I talk a lot with the referee, but I never say 'f*ck you.'"
