Bastia forward Brandão has been jailed for one month for a headbutt on Paris St-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta.

The 34-year-old, who won the French league with Marseille in 2010, had already received a six-month ban for the incident in PSG’s 2-0 home win on August 16.

CCTV cameras at the Parc des Princes showed Brandão attacking Italy’s Motta and then fleeing to the Bastia changing room, leaving the stunned midfielder with a broken nose.

The Brazilian striker will serve a month behind bars but the President of the Paris court suggested he could benefit from a reduced sentence.
