PSG condemn ex-Manchester United defender Evra´s comments

20 Mar 2019, 08:20

Paris Saint-Germain has condemned Patrice Evra's "deeply shocking" comments after his former club Manchester United's Champions League victory over the Ligue 1 side.

Footage posted on social media showed Evra wildly celebrating Marcus Rashford's late penalty and he followed that up with an expletive-laden rant that contained homophobic slurs, which emerged online after ex-Monaco team-mate Jerome Rothen had criticized the former French international's antics in the stands.

In a statement issued on Le Parisien's website, PSG said: "Paris Saint-Germain strongly condemns the homophobic insults proffered by Patrice Evra against the club, its representatives and former player.

"The remarks were deeply shocking within the club, which was particularly committed to the values of respect and openness to others.

"The fight against homophobia is at the heart of PSG's action. The fight against homophobia and all discrimination is at the heart of the action and the values of Paris Saint-Germain, which has been engaged for many years alongside Rouge Direct to combat homophobia and against all forms of racism.

"The club wanted to inform Manchester United about their former player. PSG will support any initiative initiated by its associative partners, Rouge Direct, Sportitude-France, SOS Racisme.

Evra was in the stands in the French capital alongside current United midfielder Paul Pogba when the Premier League team overturned a two-goal first-leg deficit to advance to the Champions League's quarter-finals on away goals.
