United morning news: Evra tight-lipped on future; more fans blame Fergie than Moyes

Sir Alex Ferguson

A select round-up of news relating to Manchester United

Manchester United prepare to face Olympiakos this evening knowing a win is absolutely vital…and not just any win. They must overturn a 2-0 deficit to reach the last-eight of the Champions League and at least put a plaster on a season that is fast becoming a disaster.

A number of players look set to leave in the summer, and rumours abound that Patrice Evra will be one of them. But for now the Frenchman is focused solely on helping United turn their form around.

In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, the left-back said, “It’s not a good day to talk about my future because the most important is Manchester United’s future, not mine.

“When I put on a Man United shirt, I will give everything, no matter what my future is. I really want to do a good performance and make sure Man United qualify. That is my only worry.”

Evra is out of contract this summer, and for now, what happens after that remains a mystery.

In other news, the Mirror reports that twice as many fans blame Sir Alex Ferguson for United’s current problems than blame David Moyes.

United fanzine Red ran the poll, that found 40.57% of supporters asked held Ferguson responsible for the struggles his former club are currently enduring. Only 17.45% blamed Moyes.

That is good news for a man who needs the fan support as he looks to rebuild United not just this summer, but in the seasons to come.
