Deschamps plans to contact Evra after Marseille sacking

Paris, November 11: France coach Didier Deschamps plans to contact Patrice Evra in the wake of his sacking by Marseille on Friday.

Experienced full-back Evra had his contract with the Ligue 1 side terminated after being suspended from UEFA competition until the end of this season for kicking a supporter.

The 36-year-old was red carded before the start of Marseille's 1-0 Europa League defeat at Vitoria Guimaraes this month after an altercation with a group of travelling fans boiled over.

A section of OM supporters held up a banner with the words "Evra get out" during their 5-0 win against Caen last weekend.

Evra started every match as France finished as runners-up at Euro 2016, and Deschamps said he would send the defender a private message rather than issue a public statement.

"The decisions that have been made, I'm not here to judge them," said Deschamps, who also coached Evra at Monaco between 2002 and 2005, after France defeated Wales 2-0 in a friendly on Friday.

"I will not go through you to give him a message. To give him a message I will do it directly, as I have always done.

"His situation is very complicated and I wouldn't wish anyone to be in this situation.

"But these actions have happened. They are there, they are heavy."
