PARIS (AP) — Bastia striker Brandao has been temporarily suspended by the French league after he headbutted Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta at the end of last weekend's match.

The French league's disciplinary committee decided on Thursday to "provisionally suspend Brandao starting from Friday, August 22" ahead of a hearing on Sept. 18.

After Bastia's 2-0 loss to PSG, Brandao waited for Thiago Motta in the tunnel and headbutted the Italy international, leaving him with a broken nose.

After the incident, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi called for Brandao to be banned for life.
