Patrice Evra tells Manchester United stars to wear the shirt with pride... or quit

Patrice Evra’s stars has told Manchester United’s players they have nothing less to lose, unless they have already given up.

In a video posted to his Twitter feed, Evra has urged them to fight for the badge between now and the end of this season, and put thoughts of Erik ten Hag to one side.

Ten Hag will take over as United boss at the end of the season, but there are four more games to get through, against Chelsea, Brentford, Brighton, and Crystal Palace.

Evra wants them to be as watchable as possible from a Manchester United perspective, and wants the players to focus on the ‘present’.

Your Club's SURPRISE Star This Season

Evra urged any United player who does not want to play for the team, to go and see interim boss Ralf Rangnick and rule themselves out.

The Frenchman says he wants to see the players giving ‘everything’ over the last four games, to restore some pride for the team and the support.

He said: “You have nothing to lose now — Just give everything, for the players that believe in it.. wear that shirt. If you don’t believe in that go and see Rangnick and say your seasons over

“Ten Hag is not the present, he is the really near future. That’s why I want you to focus on the present, even if the present doesn’t look that good.

“We have still got four games left for the Champions League spots. I know most of you don’t believe in our team, but me, I believe. I believe in our team, I believe in this badge and I believe that history never dies.”

Evra’s message is reflective of comments made by Gary Pallister to MUTV after the Arsenal defeat, when he urged the team to pursue maximum points over the last four games.

The club’s former players seem to get it, and to be fair, a few of the current squad might, but they are not playing with any conviction.

United have lost back to back games, conceding seven goals in the process. Injuries are not helping, with Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw now absent, even though their form has hardly been strong this campaign.

The end of the season could be a slog, it feels like it is already, but if United’s players take Evra’s words to heart, they could salvage some pride.
