Manchester United’s Carling Cup winning captain Patrice Evra says that fans are ‘not crazy’ for the continuing the green and gold protest that saw thousands of scarves at Wembley yesterday. Fans’ favourite Evra, captain in Gary Neville’s absence, is one of the few United players to comment on the protest.
“They are the original colors of Manchester United and the fans wear them because they love this club,” Evra said.
“They have their reasons for doing it and we don’t think that they’re crazy. They’d like things to change.”
More than 30,000 United fans attended the match at Wembley, with many twirling green and gold scarves above their heads as directors Brian and Avram Glazer watched on.
