Former Manchester United Left full back, Patrice Evra‘s contract has been terminated by Olympique de 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.
Marseille have also been fined €25,000 by UEFA for their supporters invading the pitch, setting off fireworks and acts of damage.
