Paris Saint-Germain striker Pierre-Alain Frau has handed a two-month suspension for injuring Sedan’s Stephane Noro in a Ligue 1 match.
Noro suffered a cruciate knee ligament rupture on October 14 and will be out of action for six months.
The French League disciplinary commission said: “(We) took into account the fact that Frau was not a violent player and did not tackle Noro with the intention to injure him.
“Because of Noro’s six-month absence, he deserved a sanction. Had the tackle been intentional the ban would have been increased.”
PSG said in a statement published on their web site the suspension was “out of proportion”.
“We reserve the right to appeal,” PSG added.”
