The French league has suspended Marseille defender Taye Taiwo for one match after he joined Marseille fans in singing an expletive-laced song about rival Paris Saint-Germain following last month's League Cup final win

Taye Taiwo

After Marseille beat Montpellier 1-0 to retain the League Cup trophy at Stade de France, Taiwo grabbed a microphone and sang with Marseille fans in a mocking and insulting song about PSG _ Marseille's archrival.

The French league gave Taiwo another two games in a suspended sentence in case of a repeat offense, although that is unlikely as Taiwo is set to join AC Milan on a free transfer next season.
