Thiago Motta headbutted in the nose after PSG-Bastia game

At the end of Paris Saint-Germain's game against Bastia on Saturday, midfielder Thiago Motta had an altercation in the tunnel with Bastia forward Brandao. And by 'altercation' I mean 'Brandao headbutted Motta in the face'.

As you can probably tell, Motta broke his nose. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was so mad that he declared Brandao "must be banned for life." That's probably not going to happen, but he'll probably get at least the three-gam ban that he'd get for violent conduct and a red card on the pitch, which isn't much of a punishment if Motta misses the same amount of time.
