Top forward for Paris Saint Germain faces sanction for leaving Wednesday's game early, forcing him to sit out the game Sunday against Olympique Marseille

Paris Saint Germain forward Jeremy Menez has been left out of the squad to face Olympique Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday after being punished for bad behaviour, coach Laurent Blanc said on Saturday.

"Jeremy has met with the club officials, I have met with him this morning. There will be a sanction. He will not be with us for the Marseille trip," Blanc told a news conference.

Menez left the PSG bench with some 20 minutes remaining as the French champions beat Benfica 3-0 in a Champions League game on Wednesday.

Blanc refused to discuss the situation when quizzed about the incident at the post-match news conference.
