I always rated Patrice, the Beast, Evra but especially so after his recent scathing attack against Manchester United’s management. Evra is a growing list of United legends beginning to openly criticize the Glazer family’s ineptitude, best encapsulated with their continued faith in Eddy “Woodpecker” Woodward.
Many former United legends are wary of openly criticizing the Glazers, so they don’t fall-out with the Club and lose the perks that come with it. However, Evra joins a growing list of vocal former United legends, including Rio Ferdinand and RvP, both of who were disrespected by Management after everything they gave to the club.
Here’s what Evra said about the Glazers, Woodward and Matt “Jughead” Judge:
‘The club needs to stop being so arrogant,’ he said. ‘There are certain people at the club right now that don’t even respect Sir Alex Ferguson.
‘Before us, Bobby Charlton, George Best, they make the history of the club and we try to respect it — the Treble season of ’99 and us in ’08. But some people want to blow this legacy away. For what? Business? 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.’
The only problem I would say to Ed is trusting people he should never trust,’ added Evra.
‘He even trusts people outside the club that he shouldn’t. 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 any more. A sporting director from a top club called me and asked me to tell Matt Judge to answer his phone.’
Yikes! Everything said above lines up with what fans have witnessed over the past decade.
Manchester United, one of the greatest football clubs in history, has been turned into a trust fund for the Glazer children. Our club will never return to greatness until the rot is removed at the top.
Enough is enough. Thanks you Patrice for speaking for all of us.
