Marseille player Patrice Evra was sent off after kicking one of his team’s fans in the head before the Europa League defeat at Vitoria Guimaraes.

Footage shows the 36-year-old former Manchester United defender aiming an acrobatic kick at a supporter at the side of the pitch during the warm-up.

Evra, who was named as a substitute, was dismissed before kick-off, and Marseille started with 11 players.

Governing body Uefa has charged Evra with violent conduct.

The full-back has been suspended for “at least one game”, with Uefa’s disciplinary body to decide the case on 10 November.

Marseille have also been charged with a field invasion by fans, setting off of fireworks and “acts of damages”.
