Evra shows off his Liverpool pain

Evra walked away with a gash needing three stitches

Patrice Evra left Anfield on Saturday with a nasty wound which needed three stitches and abuse from the scousers ringing in his ears.

The former Manchester United star last appeared in the Premier League in 2014  and had a stormy welcome back despite probably knowing what was on the way.

But afterwards he shrugged it off declaring only:  “I have missed the game and those tackles.

He added: “”Not a good result but I am very happy to be back in the Premier League.”

He carried a severe gash on his ankle which required stitches after the match,

The Liverpool fans also soured his return b reminding him of the racism row with their former star Luis Suarez.

He was booed as the line-ups were announced and although Evra wore a ‘Kick it out’ T-shirt while warming up it made no difference.

  1. So what ! ; if I showed you my injuries earned in the field as an engineer you would surely cringe . But then again , I had to work regardless ,,,, not on Tens of Thousands per week .

  2. That would explain losing 4 1 then . It’s a miracle you survived mate . Ffs . We don’t need cry babies fella , we need people who don’t complain and get on with it . Thankfully for you the kit room has a first aid cabinet . It’s just a cut ,, nothing more . Maybe the Shin pads are rubbish ,,, seeing players go down every week with the mearist of touches . It’s a Mans game , so , Man Up and stop crying .

  3. I don’t think he actually cried. I think his words where I love this game. So he is your man than isn’t he?

  4. “I have missed the game and those tackles”. Wish some people would actually read the blogs before commenting.
