Patrice Evra’s popularity in France has sunk either further after he was caught on camera wiping his arse with Mathieu Valbuena’s shirt.
Paris magazine, Le 10 Sport, said: “It was disgusting! But this gesture shows above all a real lack of respect towards the blue of France and all that it stands for. We struggle to imagine Evra doing the same with the Manchester United shirt.”
