That’s surely not how Florian Thauvin must have thought his return to Marseille was going to go.
After just six months on Tyneside, Thauvin move to Marseille on loan from Newcastle until the end of the season in the January transfer window.
Last night he was brought on as a second half sub in a 1-0 away win at Montpellier, but Thauvin was sent off after 10 minutes and 2 seconds of his Ligue 1 comeback.
The 23-year-old was sent off for a reckless and dangerous challenge by the touchline.
Watch the footage below.
