Patrice Evra Suspended, Cut From Team After Kicking Fan In The Face

Patrice Evra's contract has been terminated by Marseille after he was banned until June 2018 for kung-fu kicking a fan. It then took a violent turn when the former Manchester United player kicked a man in the head.

The Ligue 1 club initially suspended the 36-year-old from duty as UEFA investigated the incident to deem what further punishment was merited on top of a one-match ban.

Marseille is well-known for having a powerful fan base that can exert pressure on the club and players alike.

Last November 2 in Guimarães, he committed the irreparable by responding to provocations unworthy of a handful of individuals. 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.

Marseille beat Caen 5-0 on Sunday, with banners unfurled at the Stade Velodrome during the match criticising Evra and telling him to "get out" of the club.

L'OM themselves issued a statement last Friday to confirm that they too have levied a suspension on Evra, who has henceforth been rendered unavailable for selection until the club decide what to do with him. "First of all for Patrice Evra who has obviously suffered all the consequences of his action and can no longer play a part in his passion for Olympique de Marseille", Eyraud told the club's official website.

Now 36, the France global was one of the best left-backs in the world when he was at Manchester United. It must pay Vitoria 25,000 euros ($29,000) within 30 days.
