Evra: We disrespected Marseille

Marseille full-back Patrice Evra has apologised for the club's humiliating 5-1 defeat at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.

The former Manchester United defender was disappointed with his side's 'disrespectful' performance, and is determined to work hard to prevent it from happening again.

“We passed by, we forgot to play our football," said Evra, according to the Daily Mail.

“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 Marseille.

“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.”
