Evra leaves Marseille., gets Uefa’s seven months for kicking supporter


Defender Patrice Evra has left Marseille by mutual consent and been banned from Uefa competition for the rest of the season for kicking one of his own supporters before a match.

The ex-Manchester United full-back is banned until June 2018 and would have missed Marseille’s two group games and the knockout stage if they progressed.

He was fined 10,000 euros (£8,829).

Evra, 36, aimed a kick at a fan next to the pitch before a Europa League game with Vitoria Guimaraes on 2 November.

The France left-back joined Marseille from Juventus in January 2017 on an 18-month contract.
