Patrice Evra charged by Uefa with violent conduct over clash with Marseille fan
The Frenchman faces a hearing on November 10 after the incident before their Europa League match at Vitoria Guimaraes.
Uefa have charged Marseille defender Patrice Evra with violent conduct after a scuffle between the player and a club supporter before a Europa League game at Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal, the European football's governing body said on Thursday.
Evra was sent off after he appeared to aim a kick at a fan at the side of the pitch during the warm-up at the Afonso Henriques stadium.
The 36-year-old will be banned for at least one match, with the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body to rule on the incident on November 10.
Marseille have also been charged by Uefa with a field invasion by supporters, setting off of fireworks and "acts of damages" during their 1-0 defeat in Portugal.
Former France captain Evra, who won five Premier League titles and the Champions League during an eight-year spell with United, joined Marseille from Juventus in January.
He has made just two appearances for the club in all competitions this season, though.
Marseille have begun an investigation into the incident.
"A professional player must maintain self-control despite provocations and insults, no matter how unjustified they may be," the Ligue 1 club said in a statement on their official website.
"At the same time, the club can only condemn any destructive behaviour by pseudo-supporters which hurts their own players at a time when they should instead be supporting their team."
Further to Uefa investigation's into Evra, the governing body has charged Marseille with breaches of Article 16 of its disciplinary regulations: namely the "field invasion by supporters, the setting-off of fireworks and acts of damages."
