Poyet brands Man Utd's Evra 'cry-baby' over race storm

Brighton boss Gus Poyet has slammed Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra over his race row with Liverpool's Luis Suarez. The former Chelsea and Tottenham star spoke out after Liverpool striker Suarez was charged by the FA with racially abusing Manchester United defender Evra during a game at Anfield last month.

Uruguayan Poyet said: "I believe Luis Suarez, it's simple. I played football for seven years in Spain and was called everything because I was from South America. I never went out crying like a baby, like Patrice Evra, saying that someone said something to me.

"I'm surprised, in a really sad way, that he's been charged. It's really sad. I think it's worse to charge someone because you trust one person when you have no proof.

"I'm really sad about this charge because it's going to become too easy. I can make a complaint about any opposition manager and if I take it as far as I can he's going to get charged. Why are we going to take one person's word over another's? It's too risky."
