PSG confirm Thiago Motta fracture

Italy international Thiago Motta has a fractured nose after he was headbutted by Brandao, confirmed PSG.

The midfielder was caught on camera with blood streaming from his nose after Saturday’s Ligue 1 win over Bastia.

Brandao waited for Thiago Motta in the tunnel, headbutted him and ran off, but it was all captured by television cameras.

This evening Paris Saint-Germain confirmed x-rays had shown a fractured nose and medical staff are not yet clear on how long Thiago Motta will take to recover.

PSG are calling for a lifetime ban on Brandao, but in reality he risks up to two years out of the game.
