Patrice Evra sacked by Marseille after kung-fu kick on supporter

Patrice Evra sacked by Marseille after kung-fu kick on supporter

Evra was shown a red card before the start of the match for his involvement in the incident.

Last week, Marseille defender Patrice Evra roundhoused one of his team's fans in the face before a Europa League match and was suspended indefinitely by his club while they awaiting UEFA's official punishment.

UEFA charged Evra under article 15 of their disciplinary regulations, which deals with the misconduct of players, banning him from their club competitions until June. The Frenchman was sent off before the game.

Marseille, which has opened its own internal investigation into the incident, said in a statement shortly after UEFA's announcement that it has ended Evra's contract with "immediate effect".

Ignoring the fact that Evra might not be able to offer much to the club on the field now, plenty of United fans reacted to the news by urging him to return.

That said, if (as seems likely) his contract with Marseille is terminated, he would be free to play outside of Europe until the suspension expires.

Club president Jacques-Henri Eyraud added: "Today, there is sadness".

"Such behaviour, which expose the club to sanctions, have no place in the stands of a football stadium and at Olympique de Marseille in particular, where love for their team and support for their players make the Marseille public the best in France and a reference [point] for European fans". For Marseille fans then, who are stigmatized because of the irresponsible behavior of a handful of them.For the institution finally, whose reputation is tainted while it has exemplary behaviors of all one of the essential bases of its recovery project.

The book was always going to be thrown at Patrice Evra after his moment of madness last week. It must pay Vitoria 25,000 euros ($29,000) within 30 days. But Evra remained visible on Instagram videos, singing and having fun.
