Aurier placed on indefinite suspension

Paris Saint-Germain have placed Serge Aurier on indefinite suspension after the fullback released a video insulting manager Laurent Blanc as well as several of his teammates on social media.

The 23-year old right-back was found guilty of homophobic abuse as well as describing teammate Angel Di Maria as a clown from his personal Periscope account.

“This Sunday, the club have learned of a video distributed on social media in which Serge Aurier responds to questions from internet users,” a statement released on the club’s website read.

“The video, filmed in a private context, contains certain comments which are clearly unacceptable from a Paris St Germain player, towards certain team-mates and especially towards coach Laurent Blanc.

“The club have opened disciplinary proceedings against the player, accompanied by a provisional suspension. Serge Aurier therefore will not figure in the squad to play against Chelsea on Tuesday in the Champions League.

“Paris St Germain offer their full support to coach Laurent Blanc and to the players who, quite rightly, feel offended by these comments, which are against the values of the club.”
