Jacques-Henri Eyraud, President of Olympique Marseille, met Patrice Evra today and informed him of his suspension with immediate effect and a summons to an interview prior to a possible disciplinary sanction.
 
In addition, the first results of the internal investigation conducted by the club reveal an unacceptable behavior on the part of a handful of provocateurs who uttered particularly serious hateful attacks against the player as the latter and his teammates warmed up for an important match. 
 
As a professional and experienced player, Patrice Evra should not have responded in such an inappropriate way.
 
The club is continuing its investigation and will use all legal means at its disposal against individuals who, under the guise of their passion for OM, endanger their reputation by entering the field and insulting a player, instead of supporting him.
