Patrice Evra has admitted Manchester United's players need to "look in the mirror" in the wake of their humiliating Champions League exit.

Sir Alex Ferguson has attempted to deflect attention away from his young players in the wake of their Champions League exit following the 2-1 loss at Basle, although he did concede they would have to deal with the shattering disappointment of eviction from the tournament he rates higher than any other.

And Evra, whilst insisting he retained faith in his team-mates, accepted they need to work out whether, personally, they have done enough, saying: "We have to be honest and say we haven't been professional from the beginning of this competition."
