Paris Saint-Germain has suspended defender Serge Aurier until further notice for insulting coach Laurent Blanc and some of his teammates in a video posted on a social network.

Two days before PSG takes on Chelsea in a first-leg match in the Champions League's last 16, the French club said it has begun disciplinary proceedings against Aurier, who will miss Tuesday's game at the Parc des Princes.

During a live session with fans on social media late Saturday night, Aurier aimed abuse at Blanc and also insulted teammates, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It was not the first outburst from Aurier, who was suspended for three matches last year after he insulted a Champions League referee on social media.
