Brandao headbutts Thiago Motta in French league; PSG president Al-Khelaifi wants life ban
PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants Brandao to be banned for life after the Bastia striker headbutted Thiago Motta at the end of a French league match on Saturday.
After Bastia's 2-0 loss to PSG, Brandao waited for Thiago Motta in the tunnel and headbutted the midfielder, leaving him with blood running down from his nose. Al-Khelaifi said the Italian had a broken nose, although the club had not disclosed any injury details.
Brandao immediately ran away toward his team's dressing room before PSG players could surround him.
Al-Khelaifi told BeIn Sport television that "he must be banned for life."
Motta will likely miss the next couple of games.
