Marseille suspend Patrice Evra after defender kicked out at fan

Patrice Evra received a red card for kicking a fan in the head before Marseille's Europa League game

Patrice Evra was sent off ahead of a Europa League game in Portugal, with the former France global karate kicking a fan in the head.

"Olympique de Marseille has noted the altercation between an individual and Patrice Evra in the warm-up of players during the match against Guimaraes", it read.

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".

However, Garcia was also critical of the fan involved in the clash: "He's not a supporter of Marseille, because you can't insult your own players, you have to be behind all of us".

According to reports from those on the scene in Portugal, Marseille fans had been heckling Evra during pregame warmups for a good half hour.

Siemian has been hit so much that he's not setting his feet properly on throws, feeling pressure even when it's not there. You can try to make flawless calls for him but he has to play his way out of bad plays and not make them worse.

The Daily Express says Evra can expect "certain sanction by UEFA" after the ugly incident and if found guilty he can expect a lengthy ban.

Marseille have launched an internal investigation after full-back Patrice Evra was dramatically red carded before kick-off for appearing to kick a club supporter on Thursday.

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

Garcia added: "He is not a supporter of OM, because you can not insult your own players, you have to be behind everyone".

Further to UEFA investigation's into Evra, the governing body has charged Marseille with breaches of Article 16 of its disciplinary regulations: namely the "field invasion by supporters, the setting-off of fireworks and acts of damages".
