Bastia’s Brazilian striker Brandao was on Thursday jailed for a month and fined 20,000 euros ($25,000) for headbutting Paris Saint-Germain’s Thiago Motta.

The President of the Paris court, however, implied the 34-year-old could benefit from a reduced sentencing and not a prison stay.

French prosecutors had requested an eight-month suspended term and 15,000 euros fine, against Brandao who waited for and headbutted Motta after a Ligue 1 game on August 16.

CCTV security cameras at Parc des Princes showed Brandao headbutting Brazilian-born Italian midfielder Motta and then ran away to the Bastia changing rooms leaving the Paris player with a broken nose. – Agence France-Presse
