Aurier back in the frame for PSG

Serge Aurier has been brought back into the first-team squad at Paris Saint-Germain after spending six weeks with the reserves for his outburst on social media.

The 23-year-old right-back provoked the ire of club officials when he insulted PSG boss Laurent Blanc and team-mate Angel Di Maria in an interview on Periscope last month.

The defending Ligue 1 champions, who have retained their title with eight games to spare this season, took disciplinary action against Aurier and demoted him to the second string.

However, the Ivory Coast international is back in frame for Les Parisiens ahead of their league clash with Nice at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

Blanc will need every player at his disposal as the team chases Champions League, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue glory this term.
