Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has warned the club’s critics not to write them off too soon, Sky
United are currently in sixth place, seven points adrift of league leaders Arsenal with 12 games of the season gone, and Evra believes observers are too eager to dismiss United’s chances of a successful season, claiming the doubters should heed the lessons of the prior season. “People always write Manchester United off,” Evra said.
“They said the same things last year. In the end we won the league by 13 points,” he continued. “Wait until the end of the season. We are strong. We have mentally strong characters.”
“Every year is a challenge playing for Manchester United. It is never easy because when you put that shirt on you have the story of the club to consider. We have to show we love this club,” the left-back added.
Evra has been at Old Trafford since a January 2006 move from Monaco, winning five league titles and making almost 350 appearances for the club. He has featured 17 times under David Moyes this season, scoring once, against Cardiff City.
