Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has revealed that Liverpool CEO Peter Moore wrote him a letter apologizing for the racist incident that involved him and Luis Suarez years back.
Evra had claimed in 2011 that he was racially abused by Suarez in a game between United and Liverpool with the Uruguayan being handed an eight-game ban but his club, a day later wore ‘Suarez 7’ T-shirts in their warm-up before a Premier League clash with Wigan.
The Merseyside club was criticised at the time and when Evra appeared alongside Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football in October, the Liverpool legend apologised and admitted it was a ‘massive mistake’.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, Evra said: “Yes. First of all, I was really pleased, like Jamie Carragher apologized and of course, I received a personal letter from Peter Moore and I was really touched about it.
“He told me he hoped it’s never too late (to apologize) because this incident happened nine years ago. But I’m someone really positive.”
Evra is on punditry duty for Manchester United’s visit to Anfield on Sunday and has been taking his coaching badges with United with the hope that he can lead a team in the future.
