Patrice Evra freaks out his Instagram followers



The bizarre world of Patrice Evra’s Instagram took a step towards the outright deranged on Halloween night as he celebrated the holiday with a performance that would have left his followers suitably freaked out.

Marseille’s left-back has grown a huge following for his vibrant and enthusiastic performances on social media, which just this week included an impersonation of music legend James Brown.

But things turned a lot darker on Tuesday evening as he appeared covered in what we can only hope is fake blood and preceded to lick a plastic machete while surrounded by carved pumpkins.

Patrice Evra gets into the Halloween spirit with a graphic outfit and pumpkins

Fittingly, one of the pumpkins has been expertly manipulated to read ‘I love this game’ which, for one reason or another, has become Evra’s catchphrase in recent months.

Although seeming to spend most of his time creating unique content for Instagram, Evra still plies his trade on a football pitch and helped Marseille to a 1-0 win at Lille on Sunday to take them up to fourth place in the table.

The 36-year-old, who has won multiple league titles with Juventus and Manchester United during a successful career, has played four times in Ligue 1 and a twice more in the Europa League.

But his football career appeared to be the last thing on his mind this Halloween as he joined the likes of Neymar and NBA megastar LeBron James in dressing up for the occasion.

The Paris Saint-Germain star died his hair green while James displayed a strikingly accurate portrayal of Pennywise the clown from Stephen King’s hit novel-turned-movie ‘IT’.

Nothing appears to have trumped Evra’s display for sheer freakishness, however.



Victor Moses scores on Turkish debut to seal Fenerbahçe win



Victor Moses, former Super Eagles winger, scored on his debut for struggling Turkish Super League side, Fenerbahçe, in their 2-0 win over Goztepe on Friday evening.

The former Chelsea player, Moses, came on for Andre Ayew, scorer of the first goal, in the 64th minute and sealed the win nine minutes later with his first strike in Turkish football.

Fenerbahçe had won only once in seven league games and flirting with relegation before the arrival of Moses, who is looking to reignite his career after being deemed surplus to requirement at Chelsea.

The wing wizard advanced with the ball just inside the opposition’s half, laid it off for Jailson who returned the favour, picking out the galloping Moses in the six-yard box to finish off the move he started.

The former Wigan player only played twice for the London club since the arrival of coach Mauricio Sarri, and the 28-year-old forward had to join the former Turkish League champions on an 18- month loan deal late in the January transfer window.

Victor Moses abruptly retired from the Super Eagles to focus on his club career but it is hoped that a return to regular club football could make him return to the national team.

Neymar gets new lover



Neymar has sparked new rumours regarding his love life after being pictured alongside a Brazilian model, Mari Tavares.

The PSG ace has been single since his tumultuous relationship with long-term partner Bruna Marquezine ended in October.

With Ligue 1 entering a winter break, Neymar enjoys a short festive holiday – and also experiments with new looks having revealed his fake dreadlocks recently.

And while spending Christmas back in his native Brazil, he fuelled romance rumours after being spotted alongside a 20-year-old model Mari Tavares at a party.

The bombshell is an active Instagram user where she often shows off her stunning curves and tattoos to her 175,000 followers.

And although the pair have not been seen showing affection to each other yet, in Brazil Tavares is already thought to be Neymar’s next lover.

The 26-year-old winger has been single since breaking up with his long-term partner Bruna Marquezine in October.

Neymar had been involved in an on-and-off relationship with the 23-year-old Brazilian actress and model for six years before ending it in October.

The Brazil ace was rumoured to have cheated on his ex with a soap opera actress Giovanna Lancellotti, but laughed off the speculations.

It was claimed the couple were at odds over politics ahead of a heated presidential election but Marquezine denied it.

She said: “It was his decision. I am going to ask that this issue isn’t prolonged because normally I don’t speak about my personal life.

“I have a lot of respect and affection for him and for everything we went through together.

“I just want to clear this point up, because we are living through a critical and dangerous time, a time with a lot of hate and no, the breakup had nothing to do with that [politics].”
