Marseille suspend Patrice Evra after defender kicked out at fan

Former Manchester United and Juventus defender Evra became the first player to be sent off before kick-off in a Europa League match following a pre-match altercation prior to Marseille's clash at Vitoria Guimaraes, who triumphed 1-0.

Evra will now likely face disciplinary action from Uefa for his violent conduct.

Evra, named as a substitute for OM's fixture away to Guimaraes, lashed out at a Marseille fan in a heated confrontation before Thursday night's match in Portugal. Evra went to confront the fans and talk out their differences, but apparently, that didn't work out.

Some say this incident could spell the end of Evra's storied career, however, including ESPN FC's Julien Laurens, who compared the incident to when Zinedine Zidane was sent off during the 2006 World Cup final for head-butting a player.

President Donald Trump's office said in a statement that he and Chief of Staff John Kelly are monitoring the situation. Mr Trump later tweeted: "In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person".

"The club's investigation continues and will exercise the means at its disposal against the individuals who, using a passion for Marseille as a disguise, put OM's reputation in danger by entering the pitch and insulting a player instead of providing support".

Meanwhile, Marseille manager Rudi Garcia called for the 36-year-old left-back to control his emotions, per Sky Sports: "Patrice is a more than just an experienced player".

"Pat has experience, and he must not react". "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".

Cantona, a Man Utd player at the time, was suspended for a year after losing his cool with a Crystal Palace fan in 1995, and Evra may well find himself with plenty of time on his hands regardless of mitigating circumstances.
