UK bars PSG’s Aurier from travelling for Arsenal clash

UK authorities appear to have banned the player due to his recent conviction for physically assaulting a police officer outside a Paris nightclub.

Nevertheless the French champions are less than happy.

A statement on PSG’s website read: “Due to a sudden about-face by the British authorities, Serge Aurier has not been allowed to travel with Unai Emery’s squad for the clash away to Arsenal.

“Paris Saint-Germain is stunned by this incomprehensible situation that attacks the very integrity of the UEFA Champions League.”

Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier was sentenced to two months in prison and fined €2,100 in September for attacking a policeman outside a night club.
