Evra rues United's injury 'voodoo'

Patrice Evra believes Manchester United have been cursed with injury problems this season, but has praised the side's character for battling on regardless.

• United boosted by returning quartet

United have seen their talismanic captain Nemanja Vidic ruled out for the season with knee ligament damage, while the likes of Anders Lindegaard, Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley and Michael Owen are all currently unavailable.

Despite their injury woes, which Evra has dubbed a "voodoo", the Premier League champions are within touching distance of table-toppers Manchester City, and the France left-back feels their position is testament to their spirit.

Evra said in the Daily Mirror: "I don't know what is happening. I think someone is doing some voodoo on us! It's amazing how many injuries we've had. I see many teams complaining about the injuries they have but, for us, it has been amazing.

"To lose a player like Nemanja Vidic for the season ... yet we've coped with that. I think to get so close to Manchester City, given the injuries we have had, shows we have really good spirit in the team.

"That's the most important thing and that's the culture of the club - no matter what happens, we don't like to have excuses. I just say 'Well done' to every player but the job is not finished. The most important part is still to come."
