Man Utd star Evra left isolated over Suarez allegations

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."
