Evra says pal Tevez did not disrespect United

Patrice Evra insists Carlos Tevez will never disrespect Manchester United. Tevez launched a last-ditch attempt to save his Red Devils career with a pointed goal celebration at Old Trafford on Sunday.

After claiming he had never even received an offer from United to try and extend his stay beyond a two-year loan spell that expires after the Champions League final, the Argentina star declared in an interview that he was now open to other offers.

Yet he could not resist one final attempt to persuade Sir Alex Ferguson to sign him, running straight to the dug-outs and cupping his hands behind his ears as the noise rolled round the stadium demanding that he stays.

It has been viewed as part of a challenge to Ferguson's authority. But Tevez's close friend Evra views it differently.

"Carlos is a world class player but he is also a very good professional," said Evra.

"He may have had problems but in all the time he has played he respected the shirt of Manchester United."
