Ex- Manchester United Player Patrice Evra Apologises for Homophobic PSG Rant After Defeat In The Champions League Round 16


Patrice Evra has posted a video to social media apologising for his homophobic rant at Paris Saint-Germain.

Following Manchester United’s 3-1 Champions League victory over PSG in Paris, Evra posted clips of himself celebrating and mocking the Ligue 1 side.

The rant included expletives and homophobic slurs, but the former Red Devil has recorded a response apologising and explaining his actions.

“I am here to clarify, a massive, massive misunderstanding but we have to shut it down really quickly,” Evra said on Twitter.

“I made a video, as a joke, as a friend, and the French media, they take it, because I use the word ‘pede’, and they translate it as I am against the gay people.

“I am not homophobic because you know who I am, I’m ‘Mr. Love This Game’. I love everyone.

“If I offended someone, or I hurt someone, I really apologise, but it’s not my intention, they [the French media] are just trying to put me down.

“I stand for equality, you have to be free, whatever you do in life, I would never judge anyone, my mum raised me and educated me that way, and you know what? Only God can judge me.”
