Rabiot wins bonus dispute with PSG
Adrien Rabiot is entitled to a €40,000 bonus from his old club, Paris Saint-Germain, the French league has ruled.
The France international midfielder, now with Juventus, won a legal case over the payment that was withheld back in March.
Having lost his place in the team in December, it was in March when Rabiot ‘liked’ an Instagram post by Patrice Evra mocking PSG’s Champions League exit to Evra’s former club Manchester United.
That did not go down well with PSG officials and effectively ended his career at the club.

However, the refusal to pay the bonus was challenged by the 24-year-old, who has now won his case with the league’s joint appeals board.
The league could yet challenge the ruling at the French equivalent of an employment tribunal. It is not yet known whether they will do so or not.
Rabiot is now at Juventus, having signed a four-year deal in the summer following the expiry of his contract with the French champions. He made his debut for the Italian giants last month.
