United - Evra Dropped?

Last night I felt like I was eves-dropping on a private affair watching France lose to South Africa.

The events of recent days had made the fixture un-missable but for all the wrong reasons.

I wanted to tune in to see if the squalid events that have ruined France`s campaign could be eradicated by one sublime performance. Instead, I could only watch on as a nation committed one final act of hari-kari.

After the shenanigans of the past seventy-two hours, it appeared that the French boss, Raymond Domench, committed one last act of reprisal by axing his skipper, our own Patrice Evra.

Now whether Evra, one of five players dropped, was axed because of his role in the events that followed the Anelka saga isn`t something we can absolutely confirm but the evidence in front of us would suggest it was.

Evra, understandably, is keen to explain his version of events and has promised he will do so, but he also believes the French public deserve apologies as well as an explanation, when he remarks,

"It`s time to say sorry. I apologise to the fans. The French people need to know the truth. There`s no reason why I wasn`t on the pitch."

"It`s time for a big apology to the French people because I share their pain."

"What hurts even more is that this apology should have been made yesterday but my coach stopped me doing it as a captain."

"France will know the truth."

"There is a cause for all this failure, several things will come out."

"The, if people don`t want to forgive, at least they will know the truth."

"I will say everything I went through as captain. The whole of France needs to have an explanation for this disaster."

"Perhaps now is not the best time to explain but I will do so personally."

What I went through, just the truth, as quickly as possible, whether it`s in a press conference or an interview."


I for one can`t wait to hear the full story of what exactly derailed the hopes of a side that, on paper, is packed full of talent!

Cant lead a player rebellion and not expect to lose your spot. Though it would be interesting to hear what he has got to say.
