Love the guy, he was always one of my favourites and he nailed it. Every single word. "You don't like when people criticize you for playing badly? Then leave the club!"

A United legend tells it how it is. He and other ex legends should go into the dressing room and tell the players some home truths.

At 2:05 when he's saying 'we', is he talking about fans or players?

Loved Evra as a player but this is just cringe.

We could do with an ex player like him managing the side right now bringing the right vibes

He doesn't age. He still looks 23 for Christ sakes.

Evra is the man. Crazy but who cares. He gets United. Haven't had a character since him.

Most other clubs blindly love their legends despite their faults. We don't at all. Maybe Ronaldo. But Neville, Keane, Scholes, Rooney, evra and Rio all get slated all the time. Perhaps because they get crazy publicity with what they say.

Evra is an African dude that knew nothing about us before joining, then learned everything and got it. He can say whatever he wants. On top of that he was world class for multiple seasons.

Right or wrong he has the same right to speak freely about United as you do, if not more as an actual former player

I agree. Some of the players that moaned when they had a new intertim that asked much more from them should just say they want to leave. Just like Martial did. Martial probably knew his time is up, he doesnt fancy Ralf's style, so he told Ralf he wants to play elsewhere with more game time. That I can respect. Not moaning to the media trying to get Ralf out. It's disgusting.

The players and club do want to win and want to make the fans happy.

But they don’t have the ability.

Reality check.

Why do we have the most noisy former players in the league?

Reading some of the comments, it seems it's ok for fans to criticise players and club but not ok for ex players who have given everything for this club to criticise the state of affairs of this club.

Brilliant from Evra. Absolutely spot on.

The stuff about Ole might upset a few people. But he's right.

His recent suggestion that Ole didn't get enough time as United boss was worrying.

Yeah he has, and we supporters also have the right to see right through it and why he does that.

Have they ever talked about what went wrong when Moyes was managing us?

Evra talks a lot of good passion about United, but he also talks a lot of tripe. He's a bit like a kid where any fair negative evaluation toward club decisions is given childish replies.
