Evra criticises Tevez

Patrice Evra has criticised former Manchester United team-mate Carlos Tevez for displaying an "RIP Fergie" banner during Manchester City's title celebrations.

City have issued a statement apologising for the "tasteless material", saying Tevez made a "significant error of judgement" in brandishing the banner. The striker, though, did not follow his club's lead and said: "It seems like Ferguson is the president of England. When he speaks badly about a player, nobody says he has to apologise but when someone comes out with a joke, you have to say sorry. I don't say sorry."

Evra, who had a close friendship with Tevez during his time at Old Trafford, has now hit out at the Argentine and suggested he has now lost the respect of the United players.

"I was very surprised by Tevez's attitude against Sir Alex Ferguson," he was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. "I'm not sure how the manager feels about it but I'm sure he won't be impressed.

"It's disrespectful. Tevez spent two years at this club and was treated extremely well by the manager so I don't really understand his reaction or the truth about the situation."

He added: "Tevez is an adult, he plays for another club and is responsible for his own actions.

"It's a shame because he was always respected at Manchester United and remained in contact with some of the players, but I have no idea what will happen now."
