Ivory Coast footballer Serge Aurier, who plays for Paris St-Germain (PSG), has been sentenced to two months in jail for elbowing a police officer.

Aurier was also fined €600 (£521, $674) in damages over the incident at a Paris nightclub in May.

He will remain free pending an appeal, which means he could play for PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old was suspended earlier this year after making derogatory comments about the then-PSG coach.

Aurier was convicted on Monday of elbowing a police officer after leaving a nightclub in the early hours of 30 May.

The defender had been stopped to take a breath test after leaving a Parisian nightclub.

According to the police account, the officer involved needed to take a day off work to recover from his injuries.

Aurier denied the charge, arguing that he was a victim of police violence.

In addition to paying damages, he was charged a further €1,500 (£1,304; $1687) to cover court costs.

The PSG defender has had a troubled year. His suspension from the Ligue 1 side in February came after he appeared to use homophobic language to insult then-coach Laurent Blanc.

He also called his team-mate Angel di Maria a “clown” as he answered fan questions on social media app Periscope.

On Friday, he was sent off for a foul in the first half of PSG’s Ligue 1 match against Toulouse.

Despite the sentencing, Aurier is expected to be available for PSG’s tie against Ludogorets in Bulgaria on Wednesday.

A group of more than 60 leading international neuroscientists, including Mark Herceg, PhD, a neuropsychologist at Northwell Health’s Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, NY, and a member of The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, published a correspondence today in The Lancet Neurology, asking for balance when reporting on sports-related injury chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a type of dementia associated with exposure to repeated concussions, and has been linked with a variety of contact sports such as boxing, football, American football and rugby.



Although CTE is commonly featured in the news media and discussed among peers, the medical community is just beginning to understand how to recognize the disease, guidelines for how to assess its severity have yet to be established.

“We don’t currently have a clear understanding of the link between CTE pathology and any specific symptoms,” noted Dr. Herceg. “It’s important to note to the public at large that CTE is at an early stage of scientific and medical understanding, with many important aspects of the disease yet to be established.”

“Dr. Herceg and his colleague’s CTE research is timely and impactful as a major step forward to more clearly defining the risk and prevalence of this important syndrome,” said Kevin J. Tracey, MD, president and CEO of the Feinstein Institute.

A match that became so intensive with lot of bookings in the second half needed former United’s star, Angel Dimaria’s exceptional performance to decide the pace as he gave the assist to both scorers from PSG Presnel Kimpembe and brilliant Kylian Mbappe.

The team now has mountains to climb as Manchester United’s prolific midfielder Paul Pogba will definitely miss the second leg in France after he was sent off through double yellow cards in the same match. which makes the hope of overturning the result in the return leg less achievable.
