Club ac­cused of racial pro­fil­ing

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Sport / Football -

Paris St­ger­main are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a claim that club scouts recorded young play­ers’ “ori­gins” in or­der to limit the num­ber of black play­ers at their academy.

French web­site Me­di­a­part claims racial pro­fil­ing took place from 2013 to spring of this year.

Based on doc­u­ments pro­vided by the Foot­ball Leaks plat­form, the re­port says for­mer chief scout in France, Marc Wester­loppe, told col­leagues “there is a prob­lem with the di­rec­tion of this club ... too many West In­di­ans and Africans in Paris”.
