Arsenal news: Patrice Evra in stunning rant live on Sky Sports calling Gunners ‘my babies’ | Football | Sport
The Gunners fell to defeat thanks to a first-half goal from striker Lys Mousset.
And he says nothing has changed since then, claiming Unai Emery’s side like to look pretty but are not a “winning team”.
“First of all I’m really happy for Sheffield,” Evra said on Sky Sports.
“They deserved the win but I’m not surprised by Arsenal and I told you that before the game, make sure they don’t fall in the trap.
“I used to call them my babies 10 years ago and they’re still, when I look at them, my babies and that’s the truth.
“I’m not being disrespectful when I say that, it’s just the feeling I got with this team.
“They look pretty, they look good but they don’t look like a winning team. They’re just here like playing good football.
“Even when Robin van Persie came and the first day I shake his hand and I said: ‘Welcome to a man club’.
“At the beginning he was like upset but after one month he said ‘you’re completely right Patrice’ and that’s my feeling.
“[Matteo] Guendouzi is the best in midfield but he is a player who was playing in the second league in France and he was even not like playing regularly, and he’s the best player on this team.
“I know some are fuming when they see [Granit] Xhaka is the captain of Arsenal.
‘I respect them, like [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, [Alexandre] Lacazette, but you can see if those guys don’t score goals, they are in trouble and nothing’s changed.
“I am like ‘where is Arsene? Where is Wenger?’ because it’s the same.”
