FIFA investigates Serge Aurier’s ‘throat slit’ gesture….

Serge Aurier

Paris St-Germain defender Serge Aurier is being investigated by FIFA after appearing to make a throat-slitting gesture to supporters. Aurier, 23, celebrated an Ivory Coast goal against Mali by turning to the crowd and dragging his hand across his throat. Governing body FIFA said a “preliminary investigation is under way”. The controversial celebration was the latest in a string of incidents involving the full-back. In September, he was sentenced to two months in jail for elbowing a police officer, but remains free pending an appeal. And in February, he was suspended by PSG after appearing to use homophobic language to insult then-coach Laurent Blanc. He had also called team-mate Angel di Maria a “clown” while answering questions from fans on social media app Periscope.
