PSG defender Serge Aurier sentenced to jail for police assault

PARIS  - Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier was sentenced to two months in jail on Monday for assaulting a police officer following an incident outside a Paris nightclub in May.

The court heard that the troubled Ivory Coast international refused to cooperate when asked to leave his tinted-glass Porsche Cayenne car which police said was incorrectly parked outside the club in the early hours in an upmarket district of the French capital.

Police said the incident turned violent when an agitated Aurier elbowed one of the officers in the chest, causing him to have to take a day off work.

Aurier denied the charge and was allowed to walk free from the court because no order for immediate incarceration was issued, while PSG later confirmed his lawyer had lodged an appeal.

It means the full-back could play for PSG in their Champions League tie against Ludogorets in Bulgaria on Wednesday.

"The club takes note of his condemnation. An appeal has been lodged at the end of the hearing by the player's lawyer," said a PSG statement.

"Serge Aurier will continue to benefit from the presumption of innocence ahead of the appeal court's decision."

The 23-year-old, who has had recent disciplinary problems with his club, rejected the police account of the incident and said he was the victim of violence. He has filed a complaint against the police.

The court also ordered him to pay 600 euros ($674) in damages and interest as well as 1,500 euros in court costs.

Aurier, who said in court he earns 200,000 euros a month, was in trouble with his club last season after making derogatory comments about his then-PSG coach Laurent Blanc and other team-mates, including current Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, on a social media video post.

He was suspended by his club for five weeks but owned up to having committed "a stupid mistake".

But since returning to pre-season training in July, Aurier has impressed his bosses.

"The club wants to underline the player's professional attitude shown since his return on July 4.

"At the same time, Paris Saint-Germain reaffirms our affection and respect for the forces of order and the jobs they do."

However, his court appearance comes on the back of Aurier being sent off in PSG's 2-0 Ligue 1 defeat at Toulouse on Friday night, their second reverse of the season.
