Marseille's Patrice Evra sent off before match after kicking fan

Posted November 04, 2017

Things got a bit heated at tonight's Marseille v Vitória SC with Patrice Evra kicking one of his own supporters in the head before the match even began!

According to L'Equipe the 36-year-old may never wear the Marseille shirt again, as the club are wary that Evra could trigger a civil war with the supporters.

However, the Frenchman faces a far heftier sentence should he be found guilty, an outcome that appears likely due to the clear video evidence against the Marseille man.

Marseille added there had been "unacceptable behaviour" from some fans who subjected Evra and his team-mates to "hateful attacks" but said: "As a professional and experienced player, Patrice Evra could not respond in such an inappropriate way".

One Olympique Marseille fan has revealed all on Patrice Evra's meltdown last night in Portugal.

Cantona, a Man Utd player at the time, was suspended for a year after losing his cool with a Crystal Palace fan in 1995, and Evra may well find himself with plenty of time on his hands regardless of mitigating circumstances.

He was then ushered away by a teammate and referee Tamas Bognar red-carded the France worldwide.

"An internal investigation has been opened to establish responsibilities." the statement read via Sky Sports.

However, he also condemned the supporter who was attacked, saying: "He is not a supporter of OM, because you can not insult your own players, you have to be behind everyone".

Evra joined Marseille in January on a free transfer after spending two and a half seasons with Juventus.
