Angry Evra lashes out at English Man Utd players who snubbed charity match

Patrice Evra has lashed out at English Manchester United legends for not appearing at the 'Legends of the North' charity fixture on Saturday afternoon.

Only two Englishmen started for the Manchester Unite legends, who took on a side of Liverpool legends. Gary Neville and Nicky Butt were the two English representatives for the Red Devils in their starting side.

And French full-back Evra has hit out at the lack of English players on the field in his post-match interview with MUTV on Saturday afternoon. Evra fumed: "Where are the English players? When the foundation call you you have to show up.

"I don't want to criticise the players in my team, but more players need to show up. I'm living in Dubai, but when United call you, you have to show up. I'm gonna only have an ice bath, because I am so upset that we lost."

United's legends were dismantled by the Liverpool team – which itself only had three English players starting: Jamie Carragher, Jermaine Pennant, and Stewart Downing.

The United side slumped to a 3-1 loss during the charity event.

Evra also spoke about the future of United: "The current players have been here for so many years, the fans are on [top of] them so it brings a lot of negativity around the club. So we need fresh blood.

"New players? What kind of players? Will these players come for the badge? Or will they come for the money or the fame? I'm more looking for players with character and [want to know] what their reason is for coming to United.

"Of course [we need an overhaul]. It's about time, we need a change. It will be like a dramatic change. I'm not saying 10 players leave and 10 players come in and this will be the solution. But it would be a good solution."
