Evra, 36, was sent off before Marseille’s game at Vitoria Guimaraes on Nov. 2 for aiming a kick at one of his own fans after an altercation on the side of the pitch.
Marseille then had to play the entire game with 10-men and Evra’s future at the Ligue 1 club is over with Marseille banning him and the French club saying his deal has now been terminated as they also claim the decision was mutual.
Now, if he decides to carry on playing elsewhere, Evra will not be available to play in European club competitions for the next seven months.
Evra’s glittering career with Monaco, Manchester United and his resurgence at Juventus in recent years — he has won eight league titles (five in England, two in Italy and one in France) and a UEFA Champions League title at United — looks like it will end in controversial fashion.
