Agent insists sacked Marseille fullback Evra will play on

Sacked Olympique Marseille full back Patrice Evra has no plans to hang up the boots.

The former Manchester United captain is reeling from a Uefa ban until the end of the season following his kung-fu kick on one of his own Marseille fans.

His agent Federico Pastorello said: “Obviously he's not feeling great at the moment but his career will not end here, he doesn't want to leave the game in this way.

“He is physically stronger than he was five or six years ago and plenty of people have already been in touch with us.

"Patrice won't be going back to Serie A after so many years at Juventus but we're not ruling anything out, even Napoli, but that would be difficult I think."
