Patrice Evra has revealed how he saw Luis Suarez in Selfridges in Manchester after suffering from racist abuse during a match between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield in the Premier League. Evra was subjected to racist abuse by Liverpool striker Suarez in October 2011, leading to a lengthy court case and an apology from the Reds years later.
Patrice Evra said: “Later, I saw him one day in Selfridges in Manchester city centre. I was with my brother; he was with his wife and daughter. My brother said, ‘Look, he’s there – let’s go and have it out with him.’ But we couldn’t, not with family. Years later I played against him in the Champions League final for Juventus against Barcelona – we shook hands and wished each other luck. Liverpool apologised to me years later, which I appreciated. After I received a letter from the owner of Liverpool. It was so nice, and many of my friends were like ‘Patrice you should forgive them’, I say ‘guys, it’s never too late.’ I don’t have any hate.”
