Evra: Ronaldo was never THE star at Man Utd

Patrice Evra insists Manchester United's players have already forgotten about Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez.

Evra, 28, said: "It is important to be clear that Ronaldo did not make Manchester United.

"Ronaldo was never the star at Manchester United. We are ALL stars and the boss would never let any one person believe he is the star.

"He was a good player for us and a very important one. But Manchester United was Manchester United before him and it is still Manchester United after him.

"He didn't make our team, we are all winners. We lost two of them this summer in Carlos Tevez and Ronaldo, but we have added others like Michael Owen."

The French fullback added: "I am confident of a good season without Carlos and Cristiano. This is the start of another special United team.

"My focus is to win the Premier League and the Champions League, but we will be looking to win the Community Shield first.

"People need to remember that the boss is the master of building new teams. Anderson and Nani will be big players in this new team."
