Edinson Cavani scored his 100th PSG goal on Wednesday night and celebrated by showing his support to Chapecoense.
The Uruguay international unveiled a t-shirt paying tribute to the victims of the air crash and was duly booked by the referee.
Cavani insisted after the game he understood the referee had to abide by the rules but the decision left fans venting their fury on Twitter...
Cavani got a yellow card for this. Sometimes I just hate referees. pic.twitter.com/xU91tWurfa— Brandon. (@Lamelesque) December 1, 2016
An amazing tribute from Cavani to Chape. Soccer isn't only a game. Unfortunately he received an insensible yellow card after that. #cavani— Wendel Santos (@Wendel_PSY) November 30, 2016
When you think referees are bad enough here Cavani gets a yellow card for taking his top off and dedicating his goal to the Brazilian family— Haz (@VivaLaMartial) November 30, 2016
Cavani booked for dedicating his 100th goal to the victims of #Chapecoense. Is FIFA for real? This yellow card rule needs to be scrapped NOW— Varun Raj Jain (@vrj28) November 30, 2016
Cavani getting a yellow tonight is a disgrace, getting behind the cause like the whole world of football, should be given a gold card— Lawrence Schott (@lowzOTT) November 30, 2016
Surely that Cavani yellow card for dedicating his goal to Chapecoense has to be rescinded, absolutely disgusting, common sense ref.— Kevin Keen (@Kevin_Keen) November 30, 2016
