Evra has taken issue with Lizarazu's criticism in his role as a pundit.
He told Telefoot: "There are some pundits with whom I will soon settle my differences with...they want to sell a lie to the French people that Evra is disliked. But that is not the case at all.
"I do not know what Lizarazu has against me. I was twice voted best left-back in the world, four times the best left-back in the Premier League. Him, I don't even know if he was ever voted best left-back in the world.
"I recall my first call-up to the national side, all the others shook my hand apart from him. Thierry Henry said to him, 'Oh Liza, here is the opposition'. And Lizarazu looked at me and said, 'Why? Someone told you that I was already retired?'.
"People have a good impression of me, it won't be these tramps who dirty my image. They must stop lying to the French people."
