‘It feels like deja vu and I am tired’: Patrice Evra hits out at Manchester United after lacklustre display in Crystal Palace defeat as Frenchman concedes former club ‘make more impact on social media’
- Patrice Evra has hit out at Manchester United after Saturday’s defeat to Palace
- United endured a horrendous start to the season, falling to a 3-1 loss at home
- Evra says he is ‘tired’ with lacklustre performances and lack of transfer activity
- The Frenchman added that the club makes more of an impact on social media
Patrice Evra has conceded he is ‘tired’ of Manchester United’s lacklustre performances and has called on his former club to sign new players after their defeat to Crystal Palace.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell to a 3-1 defeat to the Eagles in their Premier League opener and looked bereft of attacking guile while questions were asked of their defence once again.
Former United man Wilfried Zaha came back to haunt his old club with two strikes following Andros Townsend’s opener, while Donny van de Beek’s strike was nothing more than a consolation for United.

And Evra, who was a fan favourite during his time playing under Sir Alex Ferguson at United, has revealed he is ‘tired’ when talking about United and feels there is a lot of negativity around the club.
‘Lacking everything, mainly the cohesion,’ he said on Sky Sports. ‘I can’t say first game as an excuse. Crystal Palace had no fear and came to destroy Man United.
‘[There is] so much negativity around the club such as the transfers and the club don’t do nothing about it.

‘It feels like deja vu and I’m tired, I’m a positive man but I feel exhausted after the first game of the season so good luck to all the Man United fans.’
The Frenchman feels it may be a long and arduous season for his former club, adding that many United supporters will feel disappointed about their transfer activity this summer.
‘It would be difficult this season. We can see in the transfer window, a lot of United fans are disappointed.
Evra said he is disappointed with transfer activity and wanted more after Bruno Fernandes
‘I think we make more impact on social media and in the papers than the reality. Because in the end we buy no players, or at least Van de Beek.
‘But we need more, after Bruno Fernandes I was expecting more, like a lot of United fans.’
United have around three weeks to complete their transfer business, with the club heavily linked with a move for Jadon Sancho for the duration of the summer window.
