Marseille supporters turn against Evra for kicking fan
French soccer club suspended defender for 1 game, UEFA disciplinary body to meet Nov. 10
Marseille fans have told Patrice Evra he is no longer welcome at the club after the defender kicked a supporter in the head.
Evra was suspended by Marseille on Friday, a day after he confronted a fan and aimed a kick at his head before a Europa League game in Portugal.
Evra, who appeared to make light contact with his foot, had shortly before aimed a punch at the same fan.

Fans held aloft two banners criticizing Evra before Sunday's home match against Caen at Stade Velodrome.
"This Game Is Over," read one in English, mocking Evra's regular posts on social media where he films himself talking about football and says "I love this game" as he breaks into laughter.
Another banner, in French, read: "Love for the jersey. Respect for supporters. Professionalism. Is that too much to ask?"
Other fans chanted against Evra during the match against Caen.
