PSG defender Aurier refused entry to UK

Press AssociationPress Association 22/11/2016

Paris St Germain defender Serge Aurier has been refused permission by British authorities to travel to England for Wednesday's Champions League match against Arsenal.

The French club announced that Aurier, a 23-year-old Ivory Coast international, had been denied an entry visa because of a recent assault conviction.

"Due to a sudden about-face by the British authorities, Serge Aurier has not been allowed to travel with Unai Emery's squad for the clash away to Arsenal," a statement from PSG read.

"Paris Saint-Germain is stunned by this incomprehensible situation that attacks the very integrity of the UEFA Champions League."
