Turkish clubs set to offer ex-Man United star a return to football

Fenerbahce and Galatasaray are both ready to offer former Manchester United star Patrice Evra a return to football.

The former French international has been without a club since his contract at Marseiie was summarily terminated after he kicked one of the club’s supporters in the head following an altercation before the team played Portugal’s Vitoria Guimares in a Europa League tie last month. To make matters worse he was also given a ban from all UEFA competitions until June 2018 as a result of his actions.

Now it looks like Evra will be offered a way back into football in Turkey once his ban has finished next year.

Evra spent 8 years at United and won 5 Premier League titles, a Champions League and 3 League Cups during his time at Old Trafford. He also enjoyed a successful spell at Juventus, winning 2 Serie A titles whilst with the Italian club.
