Video: Eric Cantona 2.0? Patrice Evra Appears to Kick a Fan Before Europa League Tie

Video: Eric Cantona 2.0? Patrice Evra Appears to Kick a Fan Before Europa League Tie

Marseille defender Patrice Evra may have landed himself in some very hot water this evening, after a video emerged appearing to show him kicking a supporter during a scuffle.

The former Manchester United defender is part of the Ligue 1 side’s squad that has travelled to Portugal for their Europa League clash with Vitória SC.

And while Evra is unquestionably one of the most experienced heads on the pitch, having made over 600 appearances for club and country, he appeared to lose his cool before kick-off:

Reports suggest that it Evra lashed out at one his own team’s fans during the confrontation, with it understood that the Frenchman had just completed his warm-up prior to the incident.

The video shows a large group of fans rush toward the advertising hoardings following Evra’s kick, with the 36 year old’s team-mates forced to intervene.

The images of course bring back memories of Eric Cantona’s infamous kung-fu kick on a Crystal Palace supporter that saw the former United striker originally sentenced to two weeks in prison.

While it’s unlikely that Evra will receive a similar punishment, he may struggle to make peace with the club’s fans after this…
