Evra On Injury Bad Luck

Patrice Evra feels United have had more than their share of bad luck when it comes to injuries this term.
He has a point, United have nine first team players who are currently unable to play.
But the man who took over from Nemanja Vidic as captain because of injury has praised the rest of the squad for coming through a difficult time without the likes of Vidic, Anders Lindegaard, Darren Fletcher, Chris Smalling, Michael Owen, Nani, Tom Cleverley, Anderson and Phil Jones.
The French defender told the Mirror:“I don’t know what is happening, I think someone is doing some voodoo on us.
“It’s amazing how many injuries we’ve had. I see many teams complaining about the injuries they have but, for us, it has been amazing.
“To lose a player like Nemanja Vidic for the season… yet we’ve coped with that.
“I think to get so close to Manchester City, given the injuries we have had, shows we have really good spirit in the team.
“That’s the most important thing and that’s the culture of the club – no matter what happens, we don’t like to have excuses.
“I just say ‘Well done’ to every player but the job is not finished. The most important part is still to come,”
