|Olympique Marseille Sacks Evra by snapatini(m): 6:40pm On Nov 10, 2017|
The embattled former French player and Olympique Marseille player has been sacked from the Olympique Marseille team. It will be recalled that Patrice Evra kicked a fan who was alleged to have attacked him and said some words to him last week during warm up in preparation for a game.
atrice Evra's contract has been terminated by Marseille after he was banned until June 2018 for kung-fu kicking a fan.
The former France captain was sent off before Marseille's Europa League defeat against Vitoria on November 2 after lashing out at a supporter who Evra claimed was abusing him.
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.
And Marseille quickly followed news of his suspension by terminating his contract with immediate effect.
A statement published on Marseille's website read: "Patrice Evra has been exemplary on the field and in the locker room. He played an important role in reviving the team and in the improvement of results.
"However, on November 2 in Guimaraes he committed an irreparable act by responding to provocations from a handful of individuals.
"Nothing justified such a reaction, especially from a senior player whose attitude both on and off the pitch should inspire the youngest of us.
"In that context, the conditions were no longer right for Patrice Evra to accomplish his mission here with serenity or, above all, effectively.
"Both parties agreed to end the collaboration by mutual consent.
"This incident also highlighted the unacceptable attitude of a small number of people who uttered insults and threats of violence towards the player and his family before contemptuously invading the pitch.
"Such behaviour, which exposes the club to sanctions, has no place in the stands of a football stadium and at Marseille in particular."

This is so sad...Knew he would not get a favourable judgment from the disciplinary body.
