Man Utd fullback Evra insists this season only blip

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra remains convinced this season will be a blip.

Evra is in no doubt that the players are to blame for United's worst Premier League season on record by quite some stretch.

"It's not about the manager," said Evra. "You have to take responsibility, every player. The young players, the senior players. This year everyone has failed. You should be there and it's been a disaster. A nightmare to forget really quickly.

"You always feel responsible even when David Moyes was in charge. When I spoke with him, I put the players before everything because we are on the pitch. I never point at anyone else.

"Sir Alex Ferguson was the heart of Manchester United. You cannot replace him so quickly and we knew it would be difficult, but not this difficult.

"We can do much better than we have. Maybe not win the league but at least qualify for the Champions League with the players we've got. We deserve all the criticism. We didn't play well enough. We lost some stupid games and that's why we're in this position.

"But I really think it's an accident. I know Manchester United will never die, and also that we'll come back next year."
