Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra appears on his own over claims he was racially abused by Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. Evra launched a furious attack on Uruguayan Suarez forcing an FA investigation.
However, after the claims and the ensuing furore, the Daily Mail says:
- Suarez denied any abuse and fought to clear his name.
- Sky Sports found no footage that supports Evra.
- It emerged that referee Andre Marriner did not hear any of the alleged 10 racist comments.
- While supporting their player, United are leaving the matter to the France left back.
Suarez used his official Twitter page to issue a statement on Sunday, in which he expressed his bitter disappointment. He categorically denies abusing Evra and the 24-year-old also has the unconditional backing of Liverpool.
He said: "I'm upset by the accusations of racism. I can only say that I have always respected and respect everybody. We are all the same. I go to the field with the maximum illusion of a little child who enjoys what he does, not to create conflicts."
