Ronaldo already a forgotten man at Man U, says Evra

London, Aug.9 (ANI): Cristiano Ronaldo is already a forgotten man at Manchester United, insists left-back Patrick Evra.

Evra, 28, said: "It is important to be clear that Ronaldo did not make Manchester United.

"Ronaldo was never the star at Manchester United. We are all stars and the boss would never let any one person believe he is the star. He was a good player for us and a very important one.

But Manchester United was Manchester United before him and it is still Manchester United after him," The Sun quoted Evra, as saying.

"He didn't make our team, we are all winners. We lost two of them this summer in Carlos Tevez and Ronaldo, but we have added others like Michael Owen," he added.

Frenchman Evra claims United are on the verge of something special again as they aim to move clear of Liverpool by winning their 19th league title.

They face Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley today hoping to put down a marker for the new season. (ANI)
