Man Utd's Tevez: Chelsea staff insulted Evra

The Daily Mail says United manager Ferguson will speak to all the players and staff involved. Reports from France yesterday suggested Patrice Evra may have been the target of a racist comment but Chelsea vigorously denied claims of such undertones and United said he had not made any complaint to his English-based agent.

United striker Carlos Tevez, who was not involved in the altercation, said: "During our post-match work, Evra received an insult from a Chelsea worker and my team-mates merely demanded an explanation. This was the problem and from that moment these men just wanted to attack Patrice.

"Obviously it's normal that we defend our team-mate but within a few seconds all the United players were surrounded by stewards. I think the security cameras will show the provocation we received. I have never seen anything like this in my two years in England. We will happily give our version of what happened."
