Cote d’Ivoire and Paris Saint-Germain defender, Serge Aurier, has been sentenced to two months in prison for violence against a police officer.
The incident took place outside a night club near Paris on May 30, 2016.
According to thesun.co.uk, he has also been handed a £521 fine and ordered to pay £1,300 in court costs.
Because it is a ‘convertible’ sentence, the 23-year-old will perform community service rather than spend time in prison.
Aurier will however appeal the sentence.
