PSG condemn Evra for alleged anti-gay insults aimed at the club in social media video

March 19, 2019

PARIS-SAINT-GERMAIN have condemned the anti-gay insults aimed at the club by Manchester United legend Patrice Evra in a video posted on social media.

In the clip, the 37-year-old and another man are in the back seat of a car when they respond to a user’s views on PSG.

United knocked the French side out of the Champions League earlier this month, winning 3-1 in Paris — a game which Evra attended — after losing 2-0 at home.

When responding to the person, the ex-West Ham left-back said: “This is Manchester. Stop going off on one (about PSG) and validating teams who will never win anything.”

At this point, Evra is heard clearly making two anti-gay slurs about Les Parisiens, before curtly adding “we’re men speaking here.”

PSG said in a statement: “Paris Saint-Germain condemns Patrice Evra’s homophobic insults aimed at the club, its representatives and its former players in a video released yesterday on social media.

"These remarks profoundly shocked the club, which is particularly committed to the values of respect and inclusiveness.”

When further commenting on PSG’s defeat, Evra mentions how they lost to an injury-hit side that included several youngsters.

He said: "Even my cousin who is in the front [of the car] is p***** off. Paris, you are some f****ts, some f****ts, I'm telling you. We [United] put our D team [against PSG] and we did you.

"Some kids played, they used to clean my boots. They don't even have sperm [yet]. Paris, you are some p*****s."

PSG said it had informed United of Evra’s words, but United declined to comment on the posts because Evra no longer plays for the club.

In the moments following PSG’s defeat on March 6, Evra posted a video mocking the club’s exit.

He also threatened to slap former PSG winger Jerome Rothen — his former teammate at Monaco — after he publicly criticised his attitude.

Evra played for United nearly 400 times from 2006-2014 – captaining the club on several occasions.

He was also named as France's skipper at the 2010 World Cup, but was stripped of the captaincy during the tournament after the team went on strike at training.
