Evra was captain for Unitedâ€™s season-saving second-leg win against Olympiakos in the Champions League last Wednesday.
He told the Daily Star Sunday: â€œIt was really tense in the dressing room before that match.
â€œI said to all my team-mates, â€˜Tonight, we have to play for the people we love â€“ for the United family and not for the people who criticise usâ€™.
â€œWe had to give back after the Liverpool game. Losing 3-0 at home and the fans were still singing.
â€œWhen I got home I was really sad but at the same time I was happy because we have the best fans in the world. In my head, I was saying I couldnâ€™t wait for the match against Olympiakos to give them back what they gave to us.
â€œA lot of people say you need the fans because when we do the job on the pitch, theyâ€™ll always be behind us.
â€œThatâ€™s why I want good times for all the Manchester United fans.
â€œI said before the Champions League game that I want the fans to be proud of us and we ought to say thanks to God to be able to play in the Man United jersey.
â€œMaybe people will say Iâ€™m too old school but when you play with spirit, you can do big things.
â€œI was so happy for the players, for the fans and for the new staff."
