Man Utd legend Irwin urges Moyes to rethink dumping Evra

Manchester United legend Denis Irwin believes David Moyes should think twice about allowing Patrice Evra to move on.

Irwin is impressed by how Evra has responded to rumours of Moyes buying a new left-back.

He told talkSPORT: "When you're in that position and you get a little bit older there's always some whippersnapper at the club trying to get your position. Or, because of the nature of the job, a player from another club will be linked to your position.

"You have to get on with it and deal with it. Leighton Baines was linked with the club, along with Luke Shaw at Southampton, who looks a really good player.

"When Moyes came in last summer there were always going to be assumptions becasuse he knows Baines' game.

"Evra has responded very well though and he's been one of Manchester United's better players this year."
