PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti will appear before the French Football Federation's ethics committee for criticizing the referee following last weekend's 1-1 draw with Montpellier in the French league.

Ancelotti was critical of Clement Turpin's decision to send off PSG defender Mamadou Sakho after nine minutes, and asked for more respect to be shown to his team from officials.

No date has been set for the hearing, which is expected to take place next month.

PSG sporting director Leonardo has also been summoned before the ethics committee.

Leonardo aimed some stinging comments at Turpin, live on television, saying "I don't know what's going on with the referees. I don't know what they're doing, if they're professionals, if they train, if they prepare their matches."
