Evra may go back for second appeal against FFF

Patrice Evra is considering whether to lodge a second appeal against his five-match international ban. The Manchester United full-back was handed the suspension by the French Football Federation for the part he played in a shambolic World Cup display by Les Bleus.

As national skipper in South Africa, he was deemed responsible for the player strike which greeted the decision to send Nicolas Anelka home.

He is, however, determined to get to the bottom of the issue, as he feels he has not been given suitable reasons for the imposing of the ban.

That means the Red Devils ace could once again turn to the Olympic National Committee in an effort to get the sanction overturned.

"I can't fight against everyone," Evra told the Canal Football Club television show.

"I have a lot of pain at the moment. Some people want to cut my head off, and they are being successful.

"It is difficult but I will carry on fighting until the end.

"It is very difficult to appeal again, but I still don't know why I am being condemned.

"The Federation are the only ones with the answers. That is what my lawyer is asking them for, but they have still not given them."
