WATCH: Soccer player in France gets red carded before game for kicking fan in head
Evra lost his cool, and it's quite the shock
It's hard to find a more calm professional soccer player than Patrice Evra. The former Manchester United and Juventus man, now playing for Marseille, usually has a massive smile on his face and preaches that everyone lives each day to the fullest, while trying to teach people to look at Mondays with a smile in these awesome videos.
Seems like a level-headed, positive guy, right? Well not anymore.
Marseille faced Guimaraes in the Europa League group stage on Thursday, and Evra was shown a red card before the game even started for kicking an opposing fan in the head. Take a look:
Here's a closer look:
And it turns out it all started after being heckled by the fans as there was a little pushing around before all of this.
A further suspension is surely coming for Evra and maybe even a punishment for the club because of its fans' actions.
There is certainly no need for any of this. That's just sad to see.
