Former Manchester United defender Patrick Vieira has apologised for his homophobic rant against French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

PSG had earlier condemned the former Red Devils left-back after he mocked the club in the wake of their Champions League exit at the hands of Premier League giants Manchester United.

After the game, Patrice Evra posted several videos on social media as he mocked PSG for their capitulation against the Red Devils.

Evra was at Parc des Princes as his former club secured a last eight spot in the Champions League by overturning a first leg deficit.

PSG had beaten Manchester United 2-0 in the first leg at Old Trafford in February with two second half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe and were the overwhelming favourites to qualify for the quarterfinals.

However, Manchester United had other ideas as they believed they could turn the tie around despite being written off by a lot of people.

In the end, Manchester United won the second leg 3-1 earlier this month to advance on the away goals rule at the expense of their French opponents.

Romelu Lukaku scored a brace in the first half before strike partner Marcus Rashford scored a last-minute penalty to send his team into the next round of the competition.
