PSG boss Laurent Blanc simply can't escape Emil Kostadinov. 

As Blanc's PSG were knocked out of the Champions League near the death against Chelsea on Tuesday night, a Chelsea fan taunted the Frenchman with an Emil Kostadinov shirt.

Of course, Kostadinov sent Bulgaria to the 1994 World Cup at the expense of Blanc's France at the death of a 1993 qualifier, and Blanc was the last defender to attempt a last-ditch tackle. 

That's some 21-year-old salt in a fresh wound.
