Thiago Motta headbutted at PSG

Italy international Thiago Motta has a suspected broken nose, as he was headbutted after PSG’s game with Bastia.

The midfielder played at the Parc des Princes in this evening’s Ligue 1 fixture, won 2-0 by Paris Saint-Germain.

After the final whistle, some players clashed in the tunnel on their way to the locker room.

Thiago Motta was caught on camera with a bloody nose amid reports he was headbutted.

PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi told BeIn Sports that Brandao had "waited for Thiago Motta in the tunnel and attacked him with a headbutt. He should be banned for life."

It was an eventful match, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic hobbled off with an injury early on, making way for transfer-listed Ezequiel Lavezzi.
