Patrice Evra Suspended by Olympique Marseille After Kicking Fan

Patrice Evra is led away by team-mates

Patrice Evra has been suspended by Olympique de Marseille following a scuffle with a supporter before Thursday's Europa League game at Vitoria Guimaraes, the Ligue 1 club said on Friday.

No doubt we'll see a statement from Evra in the next few hours but only time will tell what repercussions he will face for the act.

Don't expect Evra to be allowed to play again in the Europa League this year, and who knows whether Marseille will let him play any games at all after this.

Evra walked towards the fans, who reportedly had been hurling abuse at the French full-back before squaring off with them, and aimed a punch at a supporter before he dished out his best Eric Cantona impression.

Evra, 36, was sent off after he appeared to aim a kick at a fan at the side of the pitch during the warm-up at the Afonso Henriques stadium.

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

"The club is continuing its investigation and will use all the legal means at its disposal against individuals who, under the guise of their passion for OM, endanger their reputation by entering the field and insulting a player instead of supporting him".

"The Marseille substitute has been shown a red card following an incident with the crowd".

Cantona received a whopping nine-month ban from the FA for his kung-fu kick incident more than 20 years ago at Old Trafford. "Patrice is a more than experienced player and we can not respond to insults so low and so incredible because they come from one of our supporters".
