Galtier reveals what led to Ramos’ surprising red



Gaultier also claimed that referee Pierre Gayust failed to control the contest on Sunday (AEDT).

Ligue 1 leaders PSG dropped points for the second time this season after a 0-0 draw at Reims, failing to make a breakthrough against the struggling hosts after Ramos’ red card.

Ramos received two yellow cards in less than a minute shortly before half-time after arguing with the referee after Marshall Munetti was fouled.

The Spaniard’s dismissal was the 21st of his league career (in LaLiga and Ligue 1), at least seven more than any other defender in Europe’s top five leagues has conceded this century.

Speaking after the draw, which left PSG three points clear of Marseille at the top, Galtier emphasized his belief that Ramos did not mean to offend Gaiusto.

“I know Sergio Ramos very well, I’m not sure that the insult that was uttered was directed at the referee,” Galtier said.

“It’s an insult that you hear all the time on the training ground, that you hear a lot in Spain. The referee took it from him and sent him off, I’m not coming back [to speak] on this.”

PSG had 24 shots against Reims, their most in Ligue 1 since December 2011 against Saint-Etienne, and Gaultier was unhappy with the performance.

“There was a lot of nervousness on both sides that I can’t explain,” Gaultier added. “There were a lot of duels, collisions, none of the teams had a move.

“None of the three sides, the team and the referee, were in control of this game and there was a lot of nervousness.”

Gaiust has handed out six red cards in the six Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches he has officiated this season – four against Metz against Guingham, one against Nantes against PSG and one in this match.

Although Galtier disagreed with the decision to send Ramos off, he was equally annoyed by the “stupid” nature of his red card, especially with Ramos set to miss next week’s clash with Marseille.

“I will talk about it with them because there is a sequence of matches. We need the maximum number of players,” Galtier added. “Missing matches because we took stupid cards… obviously we have to fix that. I will talk to them about it.”

PSG have lost just one of their last nine Ligue 1 games in which they have received a red card and finished against 11 men (W4 D4), a 5-1 defeat at Lille in April 2019.
