In true 'Frenchman with ties to Manchester United' fashion, Patrice Evra has launched a kick at a fan in a manner Eric Cantona would have been proud of, ahead of Marseille's Europa League clash with Vitoria, tonight.

It is unclear what has caused the altercation, but early reports seem to indicate Evra has aimed a kick at the head of a Marseille fan after a section of visiting l'OM ultras managed to find their way out of the stands and began hurling insults at the former Manchester United left-back, causing tempers to flare between them and some of l'OM's players.

And if you look closely at the first five seconds, you can see 36-year-old Evra showing supreme flexibility to not so slyly throw a kick at one of the fans, nailing them in the head.

Evra received a red card before the game even kicked off for his offence, leaving Marseille with just six substitutes for the game against Vitoria. No word as of yet, but we're hoping he shouted "I LOVE THIS GAME" as he was ushered away from the scene.

Never change, Patrice.
