Evra dedicates victory to FA

13 Jan 2009 - 09:48:19

Patrice Evra has dedicated Manchester United's 3-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday to the Football Association.

The France full-back made his comeback from a four-game suspension as United boosted their title hopes with a comprehensive victory over the Blues at the weekend.

But Evra has continued his feud with the FA after again hitting out at the severity of the punishment he received for his role in a post-match fracas at Stamford Bridge last season

"I dedicate this win to the FA because I still haven't swallowed my four-game suspension," he told The Sun.

"But I had a nice time with my family and a nice holiday."

Meanwhile, Evra has played down concerns that a foot injury which forced his substitution on Sunday could lead to a lengthy lay-off.

"I hope it's nothing. It's something I've had since the Romania match with France in October," he continued.

"My foot tensed up after the cross, but for the moment I'm just thinking of the victory.

"It was a great match. It's a long time since we scored so many goals so I hope it helps us get our confidence back.

"But the league title is not a sprint, it's a long-distance race and we will have to keep chalking up the wins."
