Evra: I will decide my Manchester United future soon

The left-back says he does not know if he will leave Old Trafford in the summer or stay and admits this season has been a “nightmare” for the reigning Premier League champions

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra says that he has yet to decide whether to stay at Old Trafford but will make up his mind at the end of the season.

Goal understands the Red Devils planned a final round of talks with the full-back in April with Inter and Monaco both interested in signing the Frenchman.

Evra says he will wait until the end of the season before figuring out what he wants to do but says he would find it difficult to leave the club he joined in 2006.

“I will decide in two weeks about what I am going to do,” he told reporters.

“I am not lying to anyone. There have been a lot of rumours – am I going or staying. At the moment I have not decided anything. My agent will have a meeting with Manchester United and we will see.

“I just want to wait until the end of the season to decide what to do. Everyone knows how much I love this club. It’s difficult. The reason is an important reason. And you will see. I will tell if I am staying or leaving this club at the end of the season.”

Evra also admitted that his season has been a “nightmare” for the reigning champions, who languish in seventh place having lost 12 Premier League games.

“This year is a season to forget really quickly. It’s been so painful. It is not about this game against Sunderland. It’s about lots of games,” he added.

“This year we have been really poor. We deserve all the criticism. We didn’t play well enough. We lose some stupid games and that is why we are in this position. I really think it’s an accident.

“A lot of people know Sir Alex Ferguson was the heart of Manchester United. He is a legend. You cannot replace him so quickly. We knew it would be difficult but not this difficult.

“We can do much better than what we have done -maybe not win the league but at least qualify for the Champions League with the players we have got. It’s not about the manager. It’s a disaster this year. And it’s a season to forget.

“There has been a lack of confidence. Manchester United is not used to losing so many games in one year. It was a new experience for every player who was on that team.

“We are always playing to win trophies, four trophies. We always fight for that and this season has been a nightmare, one to forget really quickly.”
