Paris Saint-Germain has suspended right-back Serge Aurier indefinitely after a video surfaced of the player insulting his teammates and manager.

Aurier was responding to questions from supporters on Periscope, a live streaming app.

In the video, Aurier used a homophobic slur to describe PSG manager Laurent Blanc, as well as insulting certain teammates, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Angel di Maria, and Edinson Cavani.

The club released a statement on Sunday that Aurier would not feature in Tuesday’s Champions League match against Chelsea and will be suspended indefinitely.

The 23-year-old has started in 19 of PSG’s 26 Ligue 1 matches this season, and was suspended by UEFA last year after insulting a referee on Facebook.
