Marseille fans express anger towards Patrice Evra after ban
Marseille fans have told Patrice Evra he is no longer welcome at the club, with a banner on Sunday calling on the defender to “get out” after he kicked a fan.
Evra was suspended by Marseille on Friday, a day after he confronted a supporter and aimed a kick at his head ahead of a Europa League game in Portugal. Evra, who appeared to make contact with his foot, had shortly before aimed a punch at the same fan.
Fans held aloft banners criticising Evra before Sunday’s home match against Caen at Stade Velodrome.
“This Game Is Over,” read one in English, mocking Evra’s regular posts on social media where he films himself talking about football and says “I love this game” as he breaks into laughter.
Another banner, in French, read: “Love for the jersey. Respect for supporters. Professionalism. Is that too much to ask?” And there was one saying: “You thought you were above the institution OM and its supporters. We don’t want you wearing our colours. Evra get out!”
