Fergie: Evra Confirms He’ll Pursue Suarez Racism Complaint

By on October 17, 2011

Manchester United manager has revealed that Patrice Evra is ‘adamant’ he wants to follow through with his allegations that Liverpool striker Luis Suarez racially abused him during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Anfield.

Full back Evra claims Suarez racially abuse him on several occasions throughout the game, something the striker has denied. However Fergie has confirmed he’s spoken with Evra with the Frenchman intent on seeing through his complaint.

“I spoke to Patrice today. He is adamant he wants to follow it on,” said Ferguson.

“It is not an easy one for us. Everyone knows Manchester United and Liverpool have great responsibilities in terms of things that happen on the field.

“Saturday was terrific. Both sets of fans were good. There was not any of that silly chanting we have had in previous years. Both sets of fans deserve praise for that.

“It is not something we would want to level against Liverpool and it is not against Liverpool. Obviously Patrice feels very aggrieved at what was said to him.

“It rests in the hands of the FA now.”
