Waldemar Kita is not allowed to hold any position in football for the next two months. The chairman of FC Nantes has been punished for intimidating the referee after the match against Paris Saint-Germain (0-3).

The disciplinary committee of the French association LFP imposed a suspension of four months, two of which were conditional, on Kita on Wednesday evening. Because the 67-year-old Pole is not allowed to hold any position during that period, he is temporarily unable to fulfill his role as board member of the French Ligue 1.

Kita was furious with referee Hakim El Hadj at the end of October after the home game against PSG. The referee had given Kylian Mbappé a penalty very easily after the break.

During half-time (with a 0-0 score), the PSG striker had been in the referee’s dressing room together with captain Marquinhos and sports director Leonardo. They were angry because Mbappé had not received a penalty from El Hadj in the first half.

After the game, Kita furiously turned to the arbiter. The French referees’ association said in a brief statement on Thursday that it has taken note of the penalty for the chairman and that intimidation of arbitrators should not be tolerated.
