Paris: Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier will not be allowed into Britain to face Arsenal in their Champions League clash today after British authorities revoked his visa, the French club said.

"Paris Saint-Germain is stunned by this incomprehensible situation that attacks the very integrity of the UEFA Champions League," the club said yesterday, adding it was because of Aurier's September conviction for assaulting a police officer outside a Paris nightclub.

The French champions made clear their anger with British authorities, especially because they said they were only informed of the final decision yesterday lunchtime.
