UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary board ordered PSG to close two sections – 104 and 105 – of the Parc des Princes at their next home match in the Champions League group stage.

The incident occurred during the Champions League quarter-final first leg on April 2 which was won 3-1 by the French champions, with Chelsea winning the return leg 2-0 to advance.

"The sanction has been imposed for the discriminatory conduct of some Paris St Germain supporters towards disabled fans of Chelsea FC (Art. 14 of the 2014 UEFA Disciplinary Regulations)," UEFA said in a statement.

As French champions, PSG have qualified directly for the group stage this season and the ban will apply at their first home game.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
