The Parisian heavyweights have now announced Rothen, who was jeered at by fans at training following his outburst, will be able to join back up with his team-mates on Saturday.
"Following the meeting they had with Jerome Rothen last Friday, the Paris St Germain board have decided to suspend him for seven and a half days, until the night of July 10," read a statement on the club's official website.
"This punishment follows on from the comments made by Jerome Rothen in the June 1 issue of the daily L'Equipe. "The past has thus been settled and Jerome Rothen will rejoin his team-mates at the training camp at Port-Crouesty from July 11."
Rothen openly slammed the PSG board and president Sebastien Bazin in L'Equipe, concluding that "with such management I can't stay".
The 31-year-old, who has spent five seasons at the club, has been linked with a move to Blackburn Rovers and other English Premier League teams but, PSG have insisted they still want to keep him at the Parc des Princes.
