Sources: Neymar doubles down, wants PSG exit

PSG considering legal action against Manchester United legend Evra - sources

PSG correspondent Julien Laurens calls PSG's capitulation to Manchester United worse than when they lost a 4-goal lead to Barcelona 2 seasons ago.

Paris Saint-Germain are considering all possible legal action to take before making a decision on whether to pursue Patrice Evra following his latest attack on the Ligue 1 leaders, sources have told ESPN FC.

Evra celebrated wildly in the stands after former club Manchester United knocked PSG out of the Champions League thanks to Marcus Rashford's last-gasp penalty.

Following the game, his former Monaco teammate Jerome Rothen accused Evra of a "lack of respect" and Evra replied with the threat: "Next time I see you, I'm going to slap you in the face."

But the former France captain's response did not stop there.

"Here it is Manchester," Evra was filmed saying in the back seat of a taxi on Sunday. "Stop supporting teams who will never win.

"Even my cousin who is in the front [of the car] is p----- off. Paris, you are some f----ts, some f----ts, I'm telling you. We [United] put our D team [against PSG] and we did you. Some kids played -- they used to clean my boots. They don't even have sperm [yet]. Paris, you are some p---ies."

Evra finished his video by reminding Rothen: "I will f---ing slap you in the face."

The video was filmed on Sunday after Evra had been in Paris for the opening of a barbershop by Paul Pogba's brother, Florentin, but only emerged on Monday.

PSG issued a statement condemning Evra.

"PSG strongly condemns Patrice Evra's homophobic insults towards the club, its representatives, and its former player [Jerome Rothen], in a video broadcast across social networks yesterday [Monday]," the statement read. "These remarks deeply shocked a Club very attached to the values of respect and openness towards each other.

"The fight against homophobia and all forms of discriminationis at the heart of PSG's actions and values, which has worked alongside Rouge Direct [formerly Paris Foot Gay] to fight homophobia, as well as Sportitude against all forms of racism."

The statement added: "PSG will support any initiative taken by associated partners Rouge Direct, Sportitude and SOS Racisme."

PSG were already unhappy with Evra's celebration at the Parc des Princes, where he was filmed shouting: "Here it is Manchester."

But this latest incident has infuriated the club even more and could prompt legal action.
