Uefa suspended Marseille defender Patrice Evra yesterday until June 2018 for kicking one his own team’s fans before a Europa League game.
Uefa says Evra has been suspended from “all Uefa club competition matches” until June 30 and must pay a fine of €10,000 (£8,829).
Evra got into a verbal argument with Marseille supporters before the match against Portuguese club Vitoria on November 2. He then aimed a kick at the head of one of the Marseille fans before being ushered away by a teammate.
The 36-year-old France international was sent off before the game.
Marseille also opened its own internal investigation into the incident and minutes after the ruling by the Europe’s governing body, the club terminated his contract with immediate effect.
