Patrice Evra: Marseille defender sent off for kicking fan during warm-up


Evra spent eight years with Manchester United between 2006 and 2014

Patrice Evra was sent off after kicking one of his own team’s fans in the head before Marseille’s Europa League defeat at Vitoria Guimaraes.

Footage shows the 36-year-old ex-Manchester United defender aiming an acrobatic kick at a supporter at the side of the pitch during the warm-up.

Substitute Evra was dismissed before kick-off in Portugal, and Marseille started with 11 players.

Uefa’s disciplinary body is likely to rule on any further action on Friday.
