A collective negligence led to racial profiling at youth-team level inside Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), French league authorities said Tuesday when fining the club 100,000 euros. The affair began when French investigative website Mediapart revealed racial profiling by talent scouts since 2013 where potential youth signings were identified by their ethnicity. The Qatari-owned club also face an upcoming hearing from the Paris prosecutors on the same matter. The youth candidates were categorised as French, North African, West Indian or African. Such profiling is illegal in France.
