The Nigeria defender scored Marseille's winner in Saturday's match.

After the game, Taiwo took a microphone and joined fans in an expletive-laced chant aimed at archrival PSG.

The French league says it will submit Taiwo's case to the football federation's National Ethics Council.

Taiwo has been a key element in Didier Deschamps' team this season and a ban would hamper the club's chances of repeating the domestic double it achieved last season when it won the league title and the League Cup.
