Best reactions to Evra's kung fu kick

Funniest reactions to Patrice Evra's kung fu kick on Marseille fan

November 3, 2017 By Ali M.
The Frenchman is now facing a lengthy UEFA ban, but that did not stop everyone from trolling the former Man United defender.

On Thursday, Marseille defender Patrice Evra was sent off for kicking a fan of his own club on the head. The Frenchman was reportedly the victim of abuse from supporters who were upset with his recent displays, leading to the left-back’s run-in with Les Olympiens faithful who broke through the barrier.

To make things worse for the former Man United man, all of this unfolded before the game even began. Marseille players clashed with their own supporters before Evra lashed out at one who managed to reach the advertising hoardings. The player was shown a straight red for his action.

The 36-year-old also made history, becoming the first player to be sent off before kick-off in Europa League history. The Ligue 1 outfit then had another player dismissed en route to their 1-0 defeat to Vitoria Guimaraes.

The player will thus be suspended for Marseille’s next European game, while an additional lengthy UEFA ban is probably on the horizon. Manager Rudi García was upset with Evra’s reaction to the abuse, but social media saw the funnier side in this incident.

Trolls flooded in on Twitter after Evra’s kung fu kick, with many drawing comparisons between him and another Frenchman who played at Old Trafford: Eric Cantona. Check out the best tweets.

This was an unexpected burst of anger from the defender, known for being bubbly and positive on social media. It didn’t take long for him to return to his regular self, however, as BT Sport claimed he took selfies with fans shortly after the confrontation.
