PARIS (AP) Brazilian striker Brandao has been handed a one-month jail sentence along with a 20,000-euro ($25,000) fine for head-butting Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta.

The sentence exceeded the prosecutor's request for an eight-month suspended sentence along with a 15,000-euro ($19,000) fine.

After Bastia's 2-0 loss to PSG in August, the Bastia striker waited in the dressing room corridor for 20 minutes after being substituted, and as the players came off he walked over to Motta and butted him in the face before running away.
