Marseille's Patrice Evra spends time helping out the homeless
When Patrice Evra claims that he "loves this game" he really does mean it, with the defender keen to use his privileged position as a professional footballer to extend a helping hand to those most in need of it.
As such, the veteran left-back spent his Monday afternoon handing out food parcels to homeless people on the streets of Marseilles.
Just enjoying my Monday in #marseille 😁 The sad part of my journey it's i found more than 12 homeless people in less than 30 minutes 😔😔what have you done today ..? Did you help somebody? Or did you just complaining and blaming someone else ..? I just feel blessed thanks god 🙏🏼 happy Monday ♥️#helping #united #mondays #homeless #sharing #love #world #sadness #ilovethisgame #beapanda
Evra also used the video to highlight the issue of homelessness in the French city.
"The sad part of my journey is that I found more than 12 homeless people in less than 30 minutes," the 36-year-old lamented on Instagram.
