It’s been a really rough year for Paris Saint-Germain’s Serge Aurier.

In February, he made insulting comments about then-PSG boss Laurent Blanc and was suspended by the club.

And just last month Aurier was sentenced to two months in prison for assaulting a police officer.

Troubled? Clearly?

But the Ivory Coast international should be applauded for helping Moussa Doumbia after the Mali player suffered an epileptic fit during a World Cup qualifier.

Doumbia went down awkwardly in the 20th minute before Aurier quickly rushed to his aid.

Praise

Mali national coordinator Fousseni Diawara has praised Aurier for acting so quickly as Doumbia started to swallow his own tongue.

“There is one thing nobody is talking about, which is the manner in which he helped a Malian on the pitch," Diawara told Goal France, per ESPN FC.

"Doumbia fell and was swallowing his own tongue and Serge was one of the first to arrive and help.

"On Sunday, Aurier was at our hotel to ask after our guy."

Controversial celebration

It wasn’t Aurier’s only heroic act of the match, which Ivory Coast won 3-1. The 23-year-old sent in the cross that Mali’s Salif Coulibaly turned into his own net.

Controversy follows Aurier wherever he goes, though, and he made headlines by celebrating the goal with a throat-slitting gesture.
