Evra taunts Arsenal

2010-12-10 16:13

Paris - Manchester United left back Patrice Evra has lit the fuse ahead of his team's top-of-the-table match against English Premier League leader Arsenal by branding the London club merely "a training center."

Arsenal is a point clear of second-place United, which has a game in hand, heading into Monday's match at Old Trafford but Evra has cast doubt on the Gunners' title chances.

Speaking on Canal Sport show Les Specialistes, Evra says "for me, it (Arsenal) is a training center. I hear them being compared to Barcelona but people in 20 years' time aren't going to remember Arsenal's football."

The France left back added in Thursday's program that defending English champion Chelsea, which is a point further back in third, is United's "true rival."

    n my opinion, Arsenal is just an Academy. I watch their games, they’re a pleasure to watch, but will they win a title? That’s what people remember. In 10 years, nobody will remember of them. “Arsenal is a great Club, they didn’t win a trophy for 5 years, it’s a crisis in my opinion. People always think about the ‘Arsenal way of playing’, but at the end, there’s nothing. “We can lose 13-0 against them, but at the end what happen? Nothing. No trophy, no nothing.” but Evra wasn’t done, he went on to further discredit Wenger’s side by saying: “We only watch out for Chelsea’s results, not Arsenal, even though Arsenal is a great team, which can win against Chelsea, against us, against anybody. “When we play Arsenal, we enjoy it. It’s a team who play football, they won’t go at Old Trafford to play in their own box. “The difference is that we play good football but we’ve got physical power as well. Sometimes they don’t manage to kill the games, and we are more clinical.”
