Patrice Evra (39) said directly on Sky Sports that the rumors about Wilfried Zahas (27)’s alleged romance with Manchester United manager David Moyes’ daughter were the reason he did not get the chance at the club.

– We all know that Wilfried Zaha – with all due respect – is better than Crystal Palace. He is an electric player, Evra said from the Sky Sports studio while the channel showed TV pictures of the warm-up of the Crystal Palace star before Saturday’s showdown at Old Trafford.

Then he dropped the bomb:

– I think what ruined his career at Manchester United was that he had this true, or untrue, romance with David Moyes’ daughter.

– I remember that he played all the matches in the run-up, but when the news came out, he was out and disappeared. For a player he is, and he will be a big threat for Manchester United, Evra continued.

He got it right in the prediction of Zaha’s danger out on the field. The attacker scored first


But Sky Sports later in the broadcast went out and apologized for the statements to Evra. Host Kelly Cates read out the following message:

– We must clarify a comment made earlier in the broadcast, which indicated that there may have been a relationship between Wilfried Zaha and the daughter of David Moyes. We understand that Zaha has never met Moyes’ daughter, and that Patrice’s claims are incorrect. We apologize.

Evra was a left-back at Manchester United from 2006 to 2014, and was thus at the club when Zaha was brought in from Crystal Palace. Alex Ferguson was manager when Zaha was bought, but in the summer of 2013 Moyes took over after the legend. Zaha received minimal playing time, and was on loan to Cardiff before returning to Palace – first on loan, and then permanently in February 2015.

He only got two league games at Manchester United, and the rumors Evra drew forward have been circulating ever since. Last summer, Zaha denied the rumors in a conversation with former Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand in his program.

– There were rumors that I had slept with David Moyes’ daughter. I was just thinking, “What’s this nonsense?” It was tough enough for me not to play and I was all alone in Manchester. Think about it. It was so stressful for me when the rumors started to spread. I was 19 years old and my Twitter account caught fire. I had no one to talk to, and no one in the club helped me, Zaha said.

– I mean the club failed you, because you should have talked to someone in the management. They should make sure you did not feel guilty, Ferdinand said in the same program.
