PSG's Serge Aurier jailed two months for assaulting police

Serge Aurier

A French court has sentenced 23-year-old Paris St Germain right-back, Serge Aurier to a two-month prison term after being found guilty of abusing police but may not actually go to jail.

The Ivory Coast international was involved in an altercation outside a nightclub near Paris on May 30, in which he abused and acted violently towards police officers.

The sentence is "convertible", meaning that Aurier will almost certainly perform community service rather than actually go to jail.

He was also fined €600 (£520) by the Paris correctional tribunal, with a further €1,500 in costs

He has already announced that he will appeal the decision, and is still a free man - indeed, he is expected to be available for PSG's Champions League match at Ludogorets this week having played for PSG five times this season.
