Patrice Evra sent-off before kick-off for kicking fan

Patrice Evra sent-off before kick-off for kicking fan”

The Olympique Marseille fullback was sent off before their Europa League game at Vitoria de Guimaraes for kicking an away fan in the head.

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.

Substitute Evra was red-carded before kick-off in Portugal, and his side started with 11 players.

Marseille boss Rudi Garcia revealed afterwards Evra had reacted to taunts from the fans but still criticised his actions.

The 36-year-old was sent off even before the game got under way for an "altercation with supporters", according to a live text commentary on the Marseille website.

It's unknown exactly what the nature of the jibes from the crowd were, but UEFA's disciplinary body is expected to make their own inquiry into the incident on Saturday (NZT). At one point a group of hecklers came down from the stands and near the pitch-side ad boards, where they were confronted by an angry Evra.

Marseille, who were forced to start the match with only 10 players, ultimately lost the contest 1-0.
