Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been gagged from talking about the Patrice Evra case.

For the duration of the case, they have told Ferguson not to speak.

Evra is pursuing his allegations against Liverpool's Luis Suarez, made immediately after Manchester United's 1-1 draw at Liverpool last Saturday.

"The FA interviewed Patrice yesterday and have sent us a directive today saying not to discuss it while the investigation is going on," revealed Ferguson.

"I have got plenty to say on the subject but I suppose I will have to adhere to what they are saying.

"I would like to say something about Pat in this particular instance but let them get on with their investigation."
