Evra Appeals Les Bleus Ban

France captain Patrice Evra is set to appeal his five-match ban handed down to him by the French Football Federation’s disciplinary commission, according to his lawyer, Jean-Yves Foucard.

“To this day, Mr. Patrice Evra has not received notification of the decision by the Federal Disciplinary Commission on August 17 banning him from the French team for five matches.”

“Mr. Patrice Evra has decided to appeal in that nothing untoward can be ascribed to him on an individual basis given that the responsibility for the said events on the bus at Knysna is to all evidence collective.”

“The appeal would allow Mr. Laurent Blanc, the national coach, to select Mr. Patrice Evra if he so wishes as the appeal is suspensive.”
