Evra: Liverpool supporting Suarez in the race row was ridiculous

marca.com, 22 October 2019, 08:09

Patrice Evra has hit out at Liverpool for their support of Luis Suarez during the pair's racism row when both played in England.

Evra, then of Manchester United, was racially abused by the Uruguayan, but Liverpool stood by their player and even issued pre-match shirts showing his image, name and number that every player wore in the warm up.

"It was ridiculous," Evra said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.

"Even for the club he put it in danger. You always have to support your players, but this was after the ban. What message are you sending to the world when you do that?"

Jamie Carragher was also in the studio at the time, and he had worn the shirt that cause controversy, but he did acknowledge that the club were wrong and apologised to Evra.

The Frenchman refused to brand Suarez a racist, though, instead explaining that he just used racist words on that occasion, while also remembering the chaos of the situation ahead of their subsequent meeting.

"It was unbelievable," Evra added, asked about the obsession placed on whether or not the two would shake hands at Old Trafford.

"All week people asking are you going to shake his hand? I was frustrated, I wanted people to talk about the game.

"My Mum asked me and I said, 'Mummy I say I'm someone who will forgive, I will shake his hand no matter what' and he made a mistake - I won't go on holiday with him.

"When he didn't I was like, 'what's wrong with that guy, he makes himself [seem] worse.' I felt sad for him."
