Evra Banned For Rest Of The Season
Olympique Marseille defender, Patrice Evra will not play football for the rest of the season after he was handed a season-long ban by UEFA.
The left back was shown a red card even before kickoff in Marseille’s November 2 Europa League match at Portugal’s Vitoria Guimaraes, where he had been named as a substitute.
The dismissal happened after he appeared to aim a Kung-fu kick at a fan at pitch-side during warm-up.
Evra is also leaving his French Ligue 1 club by mutual consent as his career looks set for an ignominious end.
“He has done something irreparable by reacting to shameful provocations from a few individuals,” Marseille said in a statement.
While in Manchester United, Evra won the UEFA Champions League in 2008.
