Well, that's technically not what happened, the Uruguay international was shown a yellow card after celebrating with a gun toting gesture and was then shown a red card after arguing with the referee. At one point, the striker appears to touch the official.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has criticised the controversial decision, insisting that punishments given for such celebrations are bad for French football.'It is the media's job to speak about the referee,' he said to Canal +.
'Cavani does not deserve that red card. And why has he got a yellow before? He always does the same celebration.
'This is not normal and it is not good for French football if we want to develop. It is a bad situation for everyone.'
