Patrice Evra Opens Up On Letter From Liverpool After Luis Suarez Racism Incident

Patrice Evra Opens Up On Letter From Liverpool After Luis Suarez Racism Incident

Patrice Evra has revealed Liverpool sent him a personal letter to apologise for the Luis Suarez racism storm.

Evra recently appeared on Sky Sports and emotionally discussed the racism incident that occurred back in 2011.

The former Manchester United man revealed that he felt hurt seeing Liverpool players warm up in t-shirt's supporting the Uruguayan, as well as not receiving an apology from chairman Peter Moore.

But he revealed that Moore apologised following the recent broadcast.

"I received a personal letter from Peter Moore and I was really touched by it," Evra said on Sky Sports. "He told me he hoped it wasn't too late as the incident happened nine years ago.

"He got in contact about three days after the show and it was like thank you very much this letter is really touching my heart but I was really disappointed for such a long time about a big club like Liverpool supporting a cause like that.

Now I can see real honest people working for this club and I now have even more respect for Liverpool because they are fighting against a problem for the human race.

"I was really pleased but I said 'I still hope you don't win the league!' three months ago.

"It was really important for me and even though we have a big rivalry between us but it showed Liverpool is a top class club."

Jamie Carragher was one of the players who wore a shirt to support the current Barcelona and he apologised to Evra on the Monday Night Football show back in October.

"There's no doubt we made a massive mistake that was obvious," Carragher said.

"We travelled on the day of the game, had our lunch and had a team meeting and I remember either Kenny or Steve Clarke said, 'Are you still wearing the shirts?' and that was that first I heard of it.

"And I'm not saying I wasn't part of it because as the club we got it wrong and I was vice-captain.

"So I'm not sure who was actually behind it, maybe it was one of the close players, I don't think it was anything to do with Kenny. It was the players who were close to Suarez in the dressing room and they wanted to support their mate.

"What I would say maybe I look at myself and say I didn't have the courage as an individual to say I wasn't wearing it. I don't think everyone within LFC thought we were doing what was right.

"As with your own family, as a football club, your first reaction no matter what someone does is to protect even when you know they have done something wrong. And that is wrong.

"I'm not in any way condoning what we did with Suarez, it's wrong. But it doesn't matter what instance, it is that is the first reaction, and apologies we got it massively wrong."
