Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier will miss Wednesday’s Champions League match at Arsenal after being banned from traveling to London by British authorities.

The French club said in a statement it is “stunned” by a decision that “attacks the very integrity of the UEFA Champions League.”

PSG said Aurier’s visa has been revoked by the British Home office because the Ivory Coast player was sentenced to two months in prison in September for assaulting a police officer. Aurier has appealed the verdict and was allowed to remain free.

PSG said the appeal meant Aurier is “entitled to the presumption of innocence” and should have been entitled to travel.
