JUST IN: UEFA charged Man United & PSG after UCL clash

Champions League By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 13/02/2019

UEFA charged Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain following Tuesday night's Champions League clash between the clubs at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Red Devils have been charged with throwing objects and blocking stairways and Ligue 1 Champions fans are throwing objects, setting off fireworks, acts of damage and crowd disturbance.

A beer bottle was thrown from the crowd towards PSG's former United winger Angel Di Maria in the second half of the last-16 first leg, with the Argentinian responding by picking it up and seemingly pretending to take a swig from it.

It has been reported that a bottle of water was subsequently thrown Di Maria's way as well, and an item landed at the feet of United full-back Luke Shaw in the first half of the game, which the visitors won 2-0.

The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on February 28.
