The Ligue 1 champions labelled UEFA's ruling as "unfair" after its control, ethics and disciplinary body imposed the sanction for the discriminatory conduct of PSG supporters towards disabled Chelsea fans during the Champions League quarter-final first leg tie in Paris on April 2.

A statement on the club's website read: "Paris Saint Germain are unworthy of the unfounded penalty imposed by the supervisory authority and disciplinary body."

It added: "Paris Saint Germain, surprised and shocked by this unfair decision, have asked UEFA to transmit the reasons behind it, a prerequisite for the appeal.

"Paris Saint-Germain recognise the struggle everywhere against all forms of discrimination both within the stadium and in the community."

It is alleged that visiting Chelsea fans sitting below the home support at the Parc de Princes were spat at and had bottles thrown at them during the match, which the Blues lost 3-1.

UEFA responded by ordering the closure of sections 104 and 105 of Parc des Princes when PSG stage their next European game in September or October.

It is the first time a team has been charged by UEFA for abusing disabled fans, in contravention of article 14 which covers "racism, other discriminatory conduct and propaganda".

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
