Evra charged with violent conduct by UEFA
UEFA have charged Olympique Marseille defender Patrice Evra with violent conduct after a scuffle between the player and a club supporter before a Europa League game at Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal, European soccer's governing body said on Friday. Evra was sent off after he appeared to aim a kick at a fan at the side of the pitch during the warm-up at the Afonso Henriques stadium. The 36-year-old will be banned for at least one match, with the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body to rule on the incident on Nov. 10. Marseille have also been charged by UEFA with a field invasion by supporters, setting off of fireworks and "acts of damages" during their 1-0 defeat in Portugal. Olympique de Marseille have opened an internal investigation into the scuffle. "Olympique de Marseille has noted the altercation between an individual and Patrice Evra during the warm-up at the game against Guimaraes (on Thursday)," a club statement read. "An internal investigation has been opened to establish responsibilities." 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. France fullback Evra has been regularly targeted by Marseille fans since joining from Juventus during the close season and his poor performances have led coach Rudi Garcia to drop him from the starting line-up. "Pat has experience and he must not react. It's obvious," Garcia said. "Patrice is more than experienced and we can't respond, obviously, to insults as low as they might be and as incredible as they might be because they come from one of our supporters."
