Patrice Evra slams Liverpool legend after his comments about Ronaldo

Patrice Evra has hit out at Ex-Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher, following his comments about Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has been a standout performer for Manchester United since joining from Juventus in the summer, despite the poor run of results we have had.

The Portugese helped in the comeback win against Arsenal on Thursday, as he bagged his 800th and 801st goals of his career.

But despite his impressive form and goals, Carragher has criticised Ronaldo for his lack of pressing, saying he is a liability to the team when he isn’t scoring.

The former centre back had said on CBS Sports last week, “How can a club the size of Manchester United still rely on a guy who’s [nearly] 37? He was unbelievable, his goal record is unbelievable, but if he doesn’t score he is a passenger in the game.

“You have to accept that, that’s a fact. But he scores nearly every game so at the moment you can accept it.

“If Cristiano Ronaldo went four or five games without scoring, that’s a massive problem for Manchester United.”

However, Evra has hit back at Carragher for his criticism of Ronaldo, warning the Liverpool legend to stay in his lane.

He told Amazon Prime Sports, “Some players like Jamie Carragher, he had I think 775 games and Cristiano today scored 801 goals and those type of people talk about Cristiano,’ said the ex-Red Devils left-back.

“I think people have to stay in their lane. Some people just wake up and want to talk about Cristiano.”
