Patrice Evra is banned after kicking own fan in head

 

By Ed Malyon

Patrice Evra has been released by Marseille and banned from all European club matches until June 30, 2018 after kicking his own supporter in the head ahead of last Thursday's Europa League game against Vitoria Guimaraes.

The former Manchester United defender was also fined £8,829, Uefa have announced.

French football authorities may yet also impose a domestic ban on the veteran left-back.

Marseille and Evra mutually agreed to terminate his contract, which was always the most likely result after fans made their feelings known that the 36-year-old was not welcome back at the Velodrome.

A banner in the stands last weekend read: "We don't want you in our colours anymore. Evra f*** yourself."

Marseille's new American owner Frank McCourt said that Evra's behaviour could not be tolerated.

And Marseille confirmed late yesterday that Evra had left the club with a statement that had praised his behaviour up until last week's incident.

"He has committed the irreparable in responding to the outrageous provocations of a handful of individuals. That said, nothing would justify such actions," it read.
