Poyet slams Evra as "cry baby" after Suarez racism claims
Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has been branded a ‘cry baby’ by Brighton and Hove Albion manager Gus Poyet for complaining to the FA about alleged racist comments made by Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.
The FA have charged Suarez for racially abusing Patrice Evra during United and Liverpool’s 1-1 draw last month and the Uruguayan is expected to plead not guilty.
Poyet says he believes his compatriot Suarez and feels that if the FA accept Evra’s claims then it will be too easy for more players and managers to accuse opponents of racism without any proof.
He told Mirror Football: “I played football for seven years in Spain and was called everything, because I was from South America. And I never went out crying like a baby, like Patrice Evra, saying that someone said something to me. I believe Luis Suarez. It’s simple.
“I’m surprised, in a really sad way, that he’s been charged, I think it’s worse to charge someone because you trust one person when you have no proof. I’m sad, because it’s going to become too easy. I can make a complaint about any opposition manager, and if I take it as far as I can, he’s going to get charged.”
