Six minutes after he was introduced, David Beckham was sent off, as nine-man Paris St Germain secured a hard-fought Ligue 1 win over Evian.
The former England captain was given the red card, as the game continued into stoppage time, following a dangerous lunge on home substitute Youssef Adnane.
Beckham's PSG team mate Marco Verratti was also dismissed, along with PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu and Evian striker Saber Khelif who were involved in a scuffle.
PSG assistant coach Claude Makelele was sent to the stands for remonstrating, the game ending with a mass brawl breaking out after the final whistle.
The scenes overshadowed the rest of the match, during which Javier Pastore's 50th-minute goal proved decisive as PSG re-established their nine-point advantage over second-placed Marseille with four games left.
Yesterday David Beckham was named as the highest earner in British sport by the Sunday Times Richlist, the 38-year-old has amassed a fortune of £165 million from endorsement deals and salary payments.
