Man Utd news: Patrice Evra goes on incredible 20-minute rant about his former club


All is not well at Manchester United right now.

They’ve been frustrated in the transfer window so far and have only managed to sign Donny van de Beek despite being linked with a number of big signings.

If it wasn’t already obvious that the club needed reinforcements, their terrible 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday confirmed that.

Former United left-back Patrice Evra was a Sky Sports pundit during the match and had to analyse their wretched display in the studio.

But after he's calmed down slightly, he’s since recorded a 20-minute rant about the club.

During his Instagram video, Evra launched an attack on his former club with the likes of Ed Woodward, transfer chief Matt Judge and ex-teammates.


Previously, Evra had been linked with the director of football role at the club - a role in which the club have reportedly been looking to fill for quite some time now.

But after his rant, he’s probably ended any chances of that ever happening.

"If I have a problem with Ed Woodward, I won't talk on social media," Evra stated per Daily Mail. "I will just call him or meet him face-to-face about what I think about something.

"The only problem I would say to Ed is trusting people he should never trust. He even trusts people outside the club that he shouldn't. That's what I can say about Ed.

"Before us, Bobby Charlton, George Best, they make the history of the club. All those people they make the history of the club and we try to respect it, '99 and us '08. Just some people they want to blow all this legacy away. For what? Business?


"When we want a player and they cost say £20m, we end up trying to buy him for £100m. Now those players don't even want our money anymore," Evra continued.

"A sporting director from a top football club called me and asked me to tell Matthew Judge to answer his phone.

"The club needs to stop being so arrogant. There are certain people at the club right now that don't even respect Sir Alex Ferguson.

"People need to understand we [United] send lawyers to talk to players. So when we send lawyers they talk about numbers, they are not people from the football world.

"At the time, Fergie, David Gill time, we didn't hear anything in the paper, but [Robin] van Persie, Evra, [Nemanja] Vidic, [Rio] Ferdinand, everything was fast. When Manchester United need a player they go and they talk them face-to-face.

"I love this club and maybe one day I will work for this club again but I will work with my loyalty and I will never lie to any person who loves this club.

"'I think some people who work for this club are damaging this club. That's why we have to tell the truth to the fans.

"I know some people are scared to speak up about because they may not get a job in the future, I don't care, I don't need Manchester United. I love Manchester United."
