Adrien Rabiot: PSG suspend midfielder for liking Patrice Evra’s video following Champions League defeat to Manchester United
Adrien Rabiot has been suspended for liking a video posted on social media by Patrice Evra following Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League defeat to Manchester United.
Former United player Evra posted a clip of himself celebrating after the Red Devils’ stunning 3-1 win at the Parc des Princes in March.
Marcus Rashford scored a last minute penalty to send them through to the quarter-finals.
In the video, Evra said: “Here it is Manchester. Stop supporting teams who will never win. Paris, you are some f*****s! Some f*****s.”
Evra later had to deny he was making homophobic insults during the video.
Rabiot was suspended for six days by the Ligue 1 club for liking the video.
