Evra took aim at Fernandez in an interview after recent criticism coming from the former France midfielder.
Fernandez confirmed to L'Equipe: "That's what I said to Patrice Evra. I told him that I think only of the player. And on the lives of my children, I would be so happy to say we have a good left back!
"The problem with the media fury the other day, is that we've seen it boiling for years. So, for the France team, I hope, he is released!
"And against Ukraine, I want to see him eat Yarmolenko! And then I would say 'he's beautiful'. If taking it out on me and others inspires him, all the better."
