Paris Saint Germain's Serge Aurier abuses manager Laurent Blanc on Social Media
PSG face Chelsea in midweek in the round of 16 of the Champions League
Social media has exploded last night after PSG’s Serge Aurier was found to be directing vulgar messages towards his manager Laurent Blanc. The right-back hosted a live Periscope session yesterday going on rants about players fans and managers.
The video, showing he and his friend went viral after he made several ill-advised comments, insulting several people related to the club.
PSG drew 0-0 last night with Lille while resting many of their players for the Champions League clash against Chelsea in midweek. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, and Serge Aurier were all given time off, with the manager giving his bench strength some game time.
It looks like Aurier might find more time to rant about his problems after the incident. He denied any involvement saying the video was fake and old, but the live comments on the session with some referencing Valentine’s day indicate it’s posted date must be recent.
The video was apparently a Q and A session with his fans. The friend in the video was telling him the questions and Aurier responding to them.
The 23-year-old has suggested in abusive language that Blanc should be thankful he has Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his team. He also made comparisons between his teammates and also referred to his managers’ temper.
The video might not have been the smartest thing to do. Blanc might not like what he sees and Aurier faces the possibility of having, even more time off the pitch. With PSG playing a crucial Champions League fixture against Chelsea in midweek the Ivory Coast international will most likely lose his place to Gregory Van Der Weil.
After the 0-0 draw with Lille Blanc said that Pastore and Veratti will not be available for the Champions League fixture, which means youngster Adrien Rabiot will continue to deputise in midfield.
Chelsea collect first home win under Guus Hiddink
PSG’s opponents on Tuesday night, Chelsea made the ideal preparation for their round of 16 encounter, by demolishing Newcastle at Stamford Bridge. Costa opened the scoring for the Blues’ with a fine finish from a tight angle. It’s his seventh goal in eight league games under the new manager.
Willian soon made it 2-0 with Pedro adding a third before half-time. Chelsea completed the rout in the second half with Pedro grabbing his second and substitute Bertrand Traore completing the scoring.
The evening was slightly dampened with their captain Terry suffering an injury in the first half and he might be a doubt for their clash against PSG
