PSG considering legal action against Manchester United legend Evra - sources
Paris Saint-Germain are considering all possible legal actions 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 was celebrating wildly in the stands after former club Manchester United knocked PSG out of the Champions League thanks to Marcus Rashford's last-gasp penalty.
It's time to find a way to fix the Champions League -- or start a European super league.

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 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 barber shop by Paul Pogba's brother, Florentin, but only emerged on Monday.
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.
