Patrice Evra offers to QUIT Sky Sports role after Man Utd’s defeat to Tottenham

Patrice Evra asked to step down from his duties as a pundit on Sky Sports after watching his former club Man Utd fall to a heavy 6-1 defeat against Tottenham.

The ex-Red Devils defender looked inconsolable as he laid into United and suggested "some people need a slap".

"Alexis Sanchez made a comment when he signed for United, in his first training session he asked his agent to end his contract," he began. "That's what I am going to ask Sky. I really would like to end my contract with Sky.

"It is my second game, I'm a positive person and I never wanted to talk about United because when you tell the truth it can hurt. I am passionate and I love my club.

"I know you have to have some filter when you talk on TV but it is a shambles."

"Gary Neville I heard him say captain Harry Maguire needs a holiday. We always hear about pairing him with someone. But what about taking him out of the squad?

"I don't want to start to criticise players. I am someone who's been there. I make many comments about the board but tonight no one has any excuse.

"They let down all the United fans. I don't care about the result because I have been beaten 6-1. But it's just about every year it's the same story. Right now I feel all the United fans.

"That's why right now I prefer to do another game than a United game."

United were 2-1 down when Anthony Martial was shown a straight red card, before then conceding twice more before half-time.

Serge Aurier's goal and a Harry Kane penalty then compiled United's misery on a sorry afternoon for the club.

When asked what he expects from United, Evra added: "Nothing. To be honest I feel sad. Also for the manager but after we start to talk it's the manager who will be the next one.

"But what about the board? How many years since Ferguson left? How many managers have been sacked? So that's the solution.

What did you make of United's performance against Tottenham? Have your say below.

"Every year now we're going to talk about Ole's not that man. Maybe he's not. Maybe he is. We don't know.

"He wants players like Sancho but they don't go for the right price. It's like when you buy a car. I know the price but I say I'm bidding less. But what's going on with my club?

"What's going on today? I'm really emotional. It's really difficult to break a man like me. I'm a really positive person but I don't promote the violence but many people need a good slap right now.

"That's what I would do right now."
