Evra: We don't trust Rooney
London - Patrice Evra has told the Manchester United board: We'll never trust Wayne Rooney again, according to a report in The Sun
Striker Rooney has infuriated his teammates by announcing he is going to quit the club, claiming they lack what it takes to win major trophies in the future.
And French fullback Patrice Evra said: "If one player in the team does not trust the others, he should not play in the team. I trust everyone, I know we can win."
Evra's feelings about the mood in the United dressing room would have been discussed by boss Alex Ferguson when he met chief executive David Gill yesterday to thrash out Rooney's future.
Captain Nemanja Vidic also criticised Rooney, saying his decision was affecting everyone at Old Trafford.
Vidic said: "Rooney is going around and talking about the bad way we're playing or something happening around the club with the Glazers. It is not good for the players and not good for the team."
Scottish midfielder Darren Fletcher is one of Rooney's closest pals at United and could not hide his own disappointment at the striker's decision to quit.
Fletcher said: "It is just as much a shock to us as it is to everyone else. I think everyone is disappointed because we love Wayne as a team-mate and have so much respect for the manager.
"It is going to be difficult but all we can do is try and win games.
"I believe the players in the dressing room are good enough to take us forward.
"I watch them in training every day and we have got some young exciting players. When someone leaves someone always steps up to the mark."
Fletcher also believes United's history sets them apart from the rest.
He said: "I like to think this is still the biggest club. What makes big clubs is history. Clubs can have money but this club's history drives it forward.
"It has a great heritage of bringing through young players and what it has achieved in the past together with its fan base makes it the biggest club.
"I think we have spent money. Other teams have ridiculous amounts and will spend it and if you do that and sign big players you will improve.
"But maybe it takes a bit longer to get a team spirit and understanding of the way you play. Manchester United have got that."
