Patrice Evra has recently lost his job at Marseille after the French club ended his contract earlier this week, and is now looking for a new contract.
The former Manchester United and Juventus player has been banned from playing for any European outfit for seven months by UEFA following his violent behaviour ahead of Marseille’s match against Vitoria.
During the warm-ups the king of Instagram videos and investor of the hashtag, “I love this game”, lost his proverbial positivity and aimed a kick at a fan, which resulted in a red card, followed with a ban from UEFA and the end of his agreement with Marseille.

Now as a free agent, Evra is in search for a new club to join, and since he cannot aim at top-class outfits, Newcastle United fans have now started urging the Frenchman to join them.
In the past few days, fans took to Twitter to suggest their club should sign him.
Evra has previously found glory in the Premier League, having spent eight years at Old Trafford, during which he helped Manchester United win five Premier League titles and lift on Champions League cup.
Evra’s skills were also helpful when he joined Juventus in 2014, as he contributed to the team’s two Serie A Scudetti and Coppa Italia cups before leaving to join the Ligue 1 side.
Now that his career with Marseille was concluded so abruptly, the 36-year-old Senegal born may not be looking to find a place on the other side of the tunnel where he could bring his Happy Mondays without worrying about European competitions.
And with the winter transfer window only a few weeks away, joining Rafa Benitez’s men could be an ideal move.
I think @Nufc should sign Patrice Evra… he won't kick a Geordie, and if he does it'll be the last thing he ever kicks
