French giants Paris Saint-Germain now have a very difficult situation in hand after it was earlier revealed that Serge Aurier had a falling out with the coach and other members of the team and was suspended as a result.
But contrary to the rumors before, PSG are not set to terminate the contract of the Ivory Coast international in the wake of those comments by the player.
This has left the League 1 outfit with some problems for the rest of the season.
It was reported that Serge Aurier will not play for PSG ever again and that he is not wanted at the club any more.
However, the French outfit is also not willing to sack the 23-year old as they do not want him to leave the club on a free transfer this summer.
The PSG defender had a lapse of judgment, not for the first time on social media as he made a number of comments aimed towards the club’s manager Laurent Blanc and star player Zlatan Ibrahimovic along with a number of other players from the squad.
The comments made by the defender included calling Laurent Blanc ‘a faggot’ and also claiming that the boss has performed sex acts with Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
These comments took the club by a shock as they immediately suspended the player and made it clear that he will not play for the club ever again.
Earlier today, the club have also released a statement explaining the decisions of the club regarding Aurier.
PSG have now sacked the player and have also decided to the extent of punishment the player will have to go through at the club.
Serge Aurier is still a part of the PSG franchise till the end of the season but he will be demoted to the reserves for the rest of the season along with a €180,000 fine slapped by the club.
It is also understood that Aurier will be up for sale in the summer for a price of around 20 million.
Though there won’t be a shortage of clubs who want the 23-year old, his disciplinary record outside the football ground has not been great in the past.
He already made comments that upset his club in the past and this episode now may well have ended a very promising career as it is hard to see a club who would take the risk of spoiling the dressing room by bringing in the controversial defender.
