Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra needs to find a witness to support his claim of racial abuse, it has been revealed. The Guardian says Luis Suárez increasingly looks like he will not face any charges from the Football Association unless Evra can produce witness statements to support his allegation that he was racially abused during Manchester United's 1-1 draw at Liverpool last weekend.

The FA is planning to send a delegate to Manchester to interview Evra, possibly on Thursday, now that he is back in the country following the Champions League tie against Otelul Galati.

However, the case may rest on whether any of Evra's team-mates can corroborate his accusation that Suárez repeatedly racially abused him.
