According to French website Mediapart, the Ligue 1 giants recorded players’ origins to limit the number of black footballers in their academy

French website Mediapart is leaking documents saying there was racial profiling in Paris Saint-Germain between 2013 and this year.

According to the reports, the French Ligue 1 giants would have chosen not to have as many African or black players in their youth academy.

This mean many had to lie about their origins or some future football stars would have been turned away from the team.

“We are talking about one recruiting unit with a manager who put that in place from 2013 until 2017, without our knowledge. All these people have left,” a PSG spokesman told Press Association Sport according to Sky Sports.
