Platini attacks Man Utd fullback Evra, Chelsea striker Anelka

UEFA president Michel Platini has attacked Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra and Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka.

Platini was asked about the players' strike in support of forward Anelka, who was kicked out of the squad in South Africa for insulting coach Raymond Domenech

"It's pathetic. They're bloody fools," Platini told So Foot magazine.

"I would have been tougher with the players who went on strike, I would have handed them a lifetime ban."
