Evra: We Disrespected Marseille With Disappointing Loss To PSG

share on:

Patrice Evra has said he and his teammates disrespected Marseille, after suffering a crushing defeat to PSG.

Marseille lost 5-1 at home to PSG, with Emery’s men dominating proceedings throughout the match at the Stade Velodrome.

PSG went into the break 2-0 up, after Marquinhos and Cavani scored after 16 minutes.

Moura, Draxler and Matuidi scored in the second half, before Fanni scored a consolation for Marseille.

Evra refused to apologise for the crushing defeat, but is looking to repay the fans with a better performance.

“We passed by, we forgot to play our football,” Evra told L’Equipe.

“We’re sorry. But I do not like to apologise, I prefer to work so that it does not happen again.

“PSG were far superior. I’m sorry for the fans because they set the mood, and we did not follow them. We did not respect the Olympique de Marseille.”

Evra added: “I’m disappointed but games like that, setbacks, I took in my career… I lost 6-1 against [Manchester] City with United, 4-1 against Liverpool. This is not what will make me no longer believe in the project. What is certain is that we did not do the job.

“You have to take your head down and say that there is a job to do. The score hurts but the players are a bit like me, we will not listen to the media.”

As for Marseille team-mate Dimitri Payet, he said: “It will be necessary to quickly digest this pill to get a result on Wednesday [against Monaco in the Coupe de France last 16].

“We have to show another face. We have talked a lot, we will remain united. This is the best thing to do.”
