After 5 years of beef, Man U icon Patrice Evra finally buries the hatchet with Luis Suarez with lovely Instagram post
Former Man U player Patrice Evra has decided to bury the hatchet with former Liverpool and Current Barcelona striker with an Instagram post where he praised him saying he was the best striker in the world.
In October 2011 during a football game between fierce rivals Liverpool and Manchester United, Liverpool’s Luis Suárez was charged with, and found guilty of, racially abusing United’s Patrice Evra by an FA commission .. Suárez was fined £40,000 and banned for eight games.
According to Evra’s testimony to the FA in 2011, Suárez said in Spanish that he had earlier kicked Evra “because you are black”, said “I don’t speak to blacks” and used the word “negro” five times in total as they argued. Ever since 2011 there’s been bad blood between the pair on and off the pitch.
Suarez even refused to shake Evra’s hands before a match between their teams started.
Evra, now playing for Juventus, on Thursday night decided to be the mature one as he posted a photo of Suarez carrying the Golden Boot award with a caption that read:
“In my Instagram there’s ‘only love, and hate never !!! Luis, you’re a great player and the best number 9 Congratulations Luis @ luissuarez9 I love
