Brandão banned for 6 months following Thiago Motta headbutt

The LFP have announced late this evening that SC Bastia striker Brandão has been handed a 6 month ban following his head-butting of Thiago Motta last month that occurred in the tunnel post-match as the Corsicans were swept aside by PSG. 

The player is expected to appeal, with his lawyer having made comments hours earlier confident that his client would receive an 8 match ban maximum. 

SC Bastia were separately fined €3500 for crowd trouble in their most recent fixture versus Marseille.
