Laurent Blanc to meet with Serge Aurier

According to L’Équipe, PSG manager Laurent Blanc is due to meet with disgraced right-back Serge Aurier before the Ivorian international’s punishment from his club for his infamous foul-mouthed tirade concerning his PSG teammates and manager is known.

The club directors want Aurier and Blanc to discuss what happened, probably to see whether the pair can move on from this and maintain a working relationship or not. 

In the meantime, PSG have formally denied a report from France Football which claimed, among other things, that PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi punched a door as Serge Aurier was filming his apology which aired on Sunday 14th February because the Qatari was allegedly unhappy with the lack of sincerity that the Ivorian was showing in an exercise which apparently took several takes. 

Privately, it is understood that Aurier is not facing a considerable ban, with some even suggesting that he could be back for the Chelsea game.
