Evra Loses Appeal Against Five Match Ban

Patrice has failed in his attempt to get his 5 match ban received from the French Football Federation that was handed down on him for his part in the now famed French Mutiny, where the players refused to take part in training due to disagreements with then national team coach Raymond Domenech.

Evra said it was unfair to single him out just because he was the team captain but that didn’t sway the appeal committe in his direction. This decision will be benficial to Evra’s club team Manchester United who will have a fresh and rested Evra after international breaks.
