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.
