Brazilian forward Brandao sentenced to jail

Bastia striker Brandao has been sentenced to a month in prison for headbutting Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta – but the Brazilian might not serve any jail time.

The 34-year-old forward was on Thursday found guilty of assaulting the Italy international after their respective clubs’ Ligue 1 meeting in the French capital on August 16.

The president of the correctional tribunal of Paris decreed that Brandao should serve a month in prison and pay a fine of €20,000, but added that an agreement could be reached that would see the player avoid incarceration.

The incident occurred after the conclusion of PSG’s 2-0 win over Bastia but was captured on television cameras, with Brandao shown to have waited for Thiago Motta to enter the tunnel before confronting and then headbutting the midfielder.
