Man Utd fullback Evra aware doubts over personal form

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra knows he was attracting criticism over his form after his return from injury.

He told the United Review: "That's right. A lot of people were saying I wasn't the player I was last season. All this after one bad game! My strength is my consistency and after one poor performance the press crucified me.

"But the criticism made me happy because I knew they wouldn't be so upset if that was the sort of performance they expected every week. I took it as a compliment - [laughs] I must be the best left-back in the world!"
