Evra sent off before match for attacking fan

Evra was warming up ahead of the clash in Portugal when he lashed out at his own fans who had gathered behind the advertising hoarding.

Meanwhile, Marseille manager Rudi Garcia called for the 36-year-old left-back to control his emotions, per Sky Sports: "Patrice is a more than just an experienced player".

The statement also added a veiled defense of Evra's actions by condemning "pseudo fans, who insult their team's players when they should be supporting them".

Video footage showed a Marseille player aiming a kick at a group of fans during a scuffle behind one of the goals but the club did not mention the kick.

Marseille's supporters have been unimpressed with the Frenchman's performances this season and broke past barriers at the Estádio D. Afonso Henriques to confront Evra.

He was then ushered away by a teammate and referee Tamas Bognar red-carded the France global.

"An internal investigation was carried out to establish all responsible".

"Pat has experience, and he must not react. You can't respond, of course, to insults as bad as they are and as incredible as they might be because they come from one of our supporters".

"Patrice is a more than experienced player and we can not respond to insults so low and so incredible because they come from one of our supporters".

Former France captain Evra, who won five Premier League titles and the Champions League during an eight-year spell with United, joined Marseille from Juventus in January. He wasn't set to start, but Marseille couldn't name a replacement on their bench.
