Brandão sentenced to one month in jail and fined

SC Bastia striker Brandão has been sentenced to one month in jail and fined €50,000 for headbutting PSG’s Thiago Motta earlier this season at the Parc des Princes post-match.

A criminal case was brought against him by the state on top of the 6 month match ban that he received from the LFP. 

Brandão’s lawyer told reporters outside the court that there were no plans to appeal the sentence which is expected to be reduced in any event to see him not undergo any jail time and instead undertake community service.

The player will not be able to return to professional football until February 2015.
