Evra warns United that Marseille can be ‘dangerous’



Manchester United left back Patrice Evra warned his team mates that the tie against Marseille in the Champions League is a ‘dangerous game’ as the French side have nothing to lose.

With United such clear favourites to progress to the quarter finals, Marseille will be able to play with freedom at the Stade Velodrome tomorrow night.

Evra expects that Marseille boss Didier Deschamps will have his French Champions ready for the tie.

“They are going to be confident of beating us, there is no doubt about that,” said Evra.

“It’s a dangerous game for us because we are favourites so in a way Marseille have nothing to lose.

“But I’ve watched some of their games this season and you can see they are a good team and they have a great manager in Didier Deschamps, who was my coach at Monaco.

“He is not afraid of any team and I know he will get his players motivated before the game so they play with no fear.”

Evra is also looking forward to playing against Gabriel Heinze, with who he played at United for the first 18 months of his spell at the club.

“Gaby has been playing well for Marseille.

“I am pleased for him because it wasn’t easy at first with him being a former Paris St Germain player. There is a big rivalry with Marseille.

“I am happy to see him doing well and he will get a big ovation when he comes back to Old Trafford because he played so well for United.

“But I don’t want him to win against his old team.”
