Watch: PSG’s Aurier Embroiled In Controversy Again Following Bizarre Celebration

What can one say about PSG’s flying full-back, Serge Aurier? He constantly defies explanation.

In his latest newsworthy act, the Ivory Coast international saved the life of Mali forward Moussa Doumbia in a World Cup qualifier.

Aurier acted quickly and decisively to prevent Doumbia swallowing his tongue after being knocked unconscious in a collision with Lamine Kone. Recognising the danger, Aurier put Doumbia on his side, before yanking his tongue.

But, not content with leaving the pitch a hero, Aurier controversially made a cut-throat gesture when celebrating his team’s third goal.

It’s behaviour to make even Aurier-watchers aghast.

The Ivorian has already had an eventful 2016. Last month he was sentenced to two months in prison for an assault on a police offer, he called star teammate Angel Di Maria a ‘clown’ and was almost shown the door in Paris after using homophobic language to describe his former coach, Laurent Blanc.

Quite simply, what is he playing at?
