PSG suspend shirt-throwing Kezman

Paris Saint Germain have handed Serbian international Mateja Kezman a two week suspension for his temper tantrum in the midweek League Cup loss to Bordeaux.

Kezman reacted angrily to his second half substitution at the Parc des Princes, throwing his shirt to the ground and storming off into the dressing rooms.

The former Chelsea striker made a public apology on Thursday but that was not enough to prevent the club imposing a ban after talks with the player.

PSG, explaining their decision, said in a statement: "During the interview the club management indicated to Mateja Kezman that it planned to suspend him for a fortnight.

"After this period Mateja Kezman must prove to the club's management that he will be able to once again wear PSG's first team shirt."

Kezman had told French television that he deeply regretted his actions.

"I want to make it clear I love the club and I want to apologise to supporters with whom I have always had warm relations. I was annoyed with myself all night," he said.
