Man Utd fullback Evra insists no rift with Chelsea winger Malouda

Manchester United's France captain Patrice Evra insists there's no rift with Chelsea winger Florent Malouda.

Evra has denied that a training-ground bust-up with Malouda saw the Blues midfielder benched for their stalemate with Uruguay.

Evra said: "Concerning Florent's bother with the coach. I did have a thought for him being sub after starting the three prep games."

Malouda added: "I learned of it at 4pm after the meal. It didn't affect my digestion, the pancakes were very good, but there was real disappointment.

"I don't think it had anything to do with what happened in training.

"If I did well when I came on, it's because I am motivated. I want to do well for this team."
