Patrice Evra suspended by Marseille for kicking at a supporter

Marseille have suspended defender Patrice Evra after he aimed a kick at one of the club's supporters before Thursday's Europa League tie at Vitoria Guimaraes. UEFA had confirmed earlier on Friday that it had opened disciplinary proceedings against Evra following the incident and the France international's club have now taken action.
Evra was confronted by a group of supporters who had managed to get out of an area reserved for around 500 Marseille fans, who had travelled to the Estadio D. Afonso Henriques for the game. The former Manchester United left-back, named as a substitute for Marseille's fixture away to Vitoria, lashed out at the fan in a heated confrontation prior to Thursday night's match in Portugal.

President of Marseille Jacques-Henri Eyraud met Patrice Evra to inform him of his lay-off with immediate effect and a summons to an interview prior to a possible disciplinary sanction.
On Friday, UEFA announced the 36-year-old would miss at least one match, with the organisation's disciplinary body set to discuss his case at its next meeting on November 10.
