Marseille have launched an internal investigation after full-back Patrice Evra was dramatically red carded before kick-off for appearing to kick a club supporter on Thursday.

Rudi Garcia's Marseille suffered a 1-0 loss at Vitoria Guimaraes in the Europa League but the result was overshadowed by a pre-match altercation between veteran Evra and some fans in Portugal amid growing tension.

Former Manchester United defender Evra – under pressure for his form and performances this season – became the first player to be sent off before kick-off in a Europa League match after lashing out at a supporter, having been confronted by fans – believed to be Marseille followers – during the warm-up.

Patrice Evra was sent off after kicking one of his own team's fans in the head before Marseille's Europa League defeat at Vitoria Guimaraes.

Footage shows the 36-year-old ex-Manchester United defender aiming an acrobatic kick at a supporter at the side of the pitch during the warm-up.

Substitute Evra was dismissed before kick-off in Portugal, and Marseille started with 11 players.

Uefa's disciplinary body is likely to rule on any further action on Friday.

French newspaper L'Equipe reported that Marseille supporters had been jeering Evra for about half an hour while the players prepared for the game, which the French side lost 1-0 after Paolo Hurtado's late goal.

"Pat has experience and he must not react, it's obvious," Marseille coach Rudi Garcia said.

The incident evoked memories of Eric Cantona's infamous "kung-fu kick" during Manchester United's game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in January 1995.

The Frenchman was banned for nine months by the Football Association for the incident, which took place as he left the pitch following a red card.
