Marseille fared terribly on Thursday when it lost its Europa League game, 1-0, to Portugal's Vitoria SC.

The 36-year-old Frenchman, who won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2009, angrily remonstrated with his aggressors, and as the exchanges grew more heated he was joined on the touchline by some of his teammates.

The referee apparently saw the incident and red carded Evra before the game even started.

"Olympique de Marseille has noted the altercation between an individual and Patrice Evra during the warm-up at the game against Guimaraes".

Evra walked towards the fans, who reportedly had been hurling abuse at the French full-back before squaring off with them, and aimed a punch at a supporter before he dished out his best Eric Cantona impression.

In a video posted on social media, Evra can be seen executing a Kung-Fu style kick on an unsuspecting supporter and was immediately sent off by match official Tamas Bognar.

Evra was meant to be a substitute during the match but was sent back to the dressing room before kickoff.

"An internal investigation was carried out to establish all responsible".

"As a professional and experienced player, Patrice Evra could not react in such an inappropriate manner", the statement said after acknowledging that Evra has been provoked by OM fans who insulted him.

Marseille boss Rudi Garcia claimed the veteran defender should have showed more maturity in dealing with the incident - but also took a shot at the group of rogue fans. "Patrice is a more than experienced player and we can not respond to insults so low and so incredible because they come from one of our supporters".
