Outspoken defender Patrice Evra has launched a scatching attack on former Monaco team-mate Jerome Rothen in an x-rated social media rant.
Ex-Manchester United favourite Evra sparked anger in France when he posted a video of himself celebrating the Red Devils' dramatic win over Rothen's former club Paris Saint-Germain last week.
Rothen labelled Evra as "disrespectful" for his actions - prompting Evra to hit back in an astonishing post onInstagram.
The left-back responded with a remarkable nine-minute long video in which he threatened "slap him in the face" and branded Rothen a "piece of s***".
He also warned the 40-year-old that he wasn't sending "empty threats" and that he should "be careful".

"I was told Jerome said some nasty things about me," said Evra.
"I didn't believe it but then I was shown the video. Your reward, next time I see you, I'm going to slap you in the face.
"These aren't empty threats. You know we'll see each other eventually.
"You were always a salty pr*ck.

"I remember when L'Equipe gave you a rating of five and our other team-mates got seven, since you were paranoid of the ratings, you would call the journalist and ask: 'Why didn't you give me a seven?'
"Piece of sh*t. Stop telling bullsh*t, stop telling lies.
"Be careful, because we will cross roads eventually. I am sure we will."
Evra also justified his Paris celebrations and slammed the French press for their reaction to the incident.

He explained: "The whole match there was a well-dressed guy in a suit, sitting behind me and Paul [Pogba] yelling 'Ici c'est Paris!' and constantly looking at me.
"I didn't say anything until after the game finished, when I recorded a video in which me and Paul were yelling 'Ici c'est Manchester!' as revenge.
"French press think I am an enemy of the state for rooting against PSG. Yellow jacket protests? My fault. PSG's elimination? My fault. The French press is too focused on my celebrations but I don't care."
