Evra denies homophobia after social media spat with PSG

PSG condemns Patrice Evra for homophobic slurs aimed at club

On Monday, Evra was captured in a video on social media in which the former Manchester United man used homophobic and explicit French language to describe PSG, such as "p*****s" and "f*****s", after their 3-1 defeat at the hands of United.

"The remarks were deeply shocking within the club, which was particularly committed to the values of respect and openness to others".

PSG also contacted United to discuss the issue, but the Red Devils quickly moved to distance themselves from the issue as Evra is not an employee of the club.

"If I offend someone or I hurt someone, I really apologize".

Evra's comments came after he celebrated former side United's progress in Europe - Rothen, an ex-teammate at Monaco, accused him of a lack of respect.

"They translated it as I am against the gay people, and I am not homophobic because you know who I am, I am Mr "I Love This Game".

Evra, who played for Manchester United from 2006 to 2014, faced condemnation from Paris Saint-Germain over the comments.

But Evra, who was a member of the French club's academy before beginning his professional career at Marsala, has defended himself in another video posted on his Twitter account on Tuesday.

"I would never judge anyone, my mother raised me and educated me that way and only God can judge me", he added. "So please, stop this negativity, because you will never shut me down, okay?" he continued.

Evra continued to blame the French media for their part in reporting the video, which he posted on Sunday to his 5.8 million followers on Instagram.

"We should be together, united, to make the world a better place".

However, his celebrations didn't stop there as he released a profane rant in French aimed at PSG on his social media handle that allegedly referred to the PSG players as "fa**ots" and reminded them that they had lost to Manchester United's D-team. Is your life so boring? Why are you trying to put my video everywhere? I'm not playing for the national team anymore so what's wrong with you? "But I love this game!"
