Marseille's players were warming up before their Europa League match with Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal when Evra was targeted by supporters with unkind chants.

Marseille defender Patrice Evra has been sent off before Thursday's Europa League game at Vitoria de Guimaraes for appearing to kick a fan.

However, Garcia was also critical of the fan involved in the clash: "He's not a supporter of Marseille, because you can't insult your own players, you have to be behind all of us".

The Daily Express says Evra can expect "certain sanction by UEFA" after the ugly incident and if found guilty he can expect a lengthy ban.

And he was caught on camera raising his boot to a supporter in scenes similar to when Cantona ran into the crowd at Selhurst Park 12 years ago.

"An internal investigation will be carried out to establish all responsible", it stated. The boos eventually enticed Evra to the sideline, where he got into an argument with fans and eventually kicked one square in the face.

The 36-year-old former Manchester United player joined Marseille from Juventus in January 2017 but has received heavy criticism for his performances this season and lost his place in the team. "It's obvious", Garcia said.

"The club's investigation continues and will exercise the means at its disposal against the individuals who, using a passion for Marseille as a disguise, put OM's reputation in danger by entering the pitch and insulting a player instead of providing support". He wasn't set to start, but Marseille couldn't name a replacement on their bench.
