Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that Serge Aurier will face court proceedings in September. The Ivory Coast international was arrested on Sunday in the French capital, allegedly due to an assault on a police officer after his car was stopped shortly after he left a nightclub.
His solicitor, Claire Boutaud de la Combe, confirmed on Tuesday that Aurier has filed a personal complaint alleging violence on behalf of the police and strongly refutes all charges against him. PSG have issued a statement to confirm they have been made aware of the incident but insist that the full-back remains innocent until proven guilty.
