Sebastian Coltescu, the referee involved in the alleged racist incident between PSG and Istanbul Baseksehir, returned to refereeing in the Romanian league. He took charge of the match between Sepsi and Astra Giurgiu.

Sebastian Coltescu, the fourth official in the Champions League clash between PSG and Istanbul Baseksehir, was at the centre of controversy for supposedly uttering a racist comment towards a member of the Baseksehir coaching staff. He has now returned to refereeing in the Romanian league. 

46 days after that match at the Parc des Princes, Coltescy returned to refereeing. He took charge of the top flight match between Sepsi and Astra Giurgiu (4-1), although he had not been punished. He was just unable to carry out the fitness tests with the rest of his colleagues. "I'm happy Sebastian Coltescu has returned. I know he worked very hard to be at the required level. Although I don't agree with the penalty he gave against us, I'm happy he's returned. I think what happened to him wasn't normal," Eugen Beagoe, the away team's coach said. 

The expression Coltescu used to his compatriot Ovidiu Hategan, the referee for that Champions League ,match, was heard by Pierre Webo, Istanbul Baseksehir's assistant coach. That caused the match to be abandoned until the following day with new official. Spanish lawyer Josep Vandellos will defend the official in UEFA's hearing.
