VIDEO: Liverpool & Arsenal target calms down PSG star after headbutt

Edinson Cavani had to help Thiago Motta keep his cool after Bastia striker Brandao head butted the Italy international.

In an astonishing attack after PSG's match with Bastia in Ligue 1, the Corsican outfit's forward Brandao head butted PSG midfielder Thiago Motta as the two teams made their way back to the dressing room.

The Brazilian striker only joined Bastia, managed by former PSG and Chelsea player Claude Makelele, this summer, but clearly had some kind of issue with the tough tackling former Inter midfielder, who has duel Brazilian and Italian nationality.

Waiting for the PSG midfielder in the tunnel after game, the former Shakhtar player threw his forehead into Motta's face, seemingly breaking his nose, before dashing back towards his dressing room.

Inevitably, Motta dashed after him, with the ensuing melee quickly drawing staff and members of both clubs to diffuse the situation.

One of the first to arrive on the scene was PSG's Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani, who has this week seen his name closely linked to moves to both Liverpool and Arsenal.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic going off injured during the game, and Cavani scoring his first goal of the season, it remains to be seen quite how likely the ex Napoli star is to move to England.

At least he knows that if nothing else, he would be able to get some work on the side as a security guard.
