Patrice Evra says people at Man Utd ‘need a good slap’ in damning Spurs review

Patrice Evra wanted to slap Manchester United following their 6-1 thrashing by Tottenham that left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitting it was his worst day as a boss.

Solskjaer and his 10-man United flops were hit for six to suffer their heaviest defeat since 2011.

The fallen giants have now lost their first two home games of a league campaign for just the fifth time in the club's history and taken three points from three games to slump to 16th in the table.

Gary Neville laid into United, describing them as 'spineless and pathetic', while Evra labelled the result a 'catastrophe' and claimed some people at the club needed slapping.

Evra said: "It's a catastrophe what's happening right now. I'm devastated. It's a shambles. No-one had an excuse.

"They let down all the fans and every year it's the same old story. What's going on with my club? Many people need a good slap."

A fuming Neville added: "There is no excuse for those 11 players who were out on that pitch today, they were absolutely pathetic. Their body language was terrible, it was spiritless and spineless."

A distraught Solskjaer offered no excuses and called on his failures to take a good look at themselves.

He said: "Of course it's alarming. It's nowhere near good enough. I hold my hand up.

"It's my decision to pick the team and as a squad it's not good enough for Manchester United. You have to look at yourself in the mirror.

"It is the worst day of my career as Manchester United manager – and the worst day for all of them as United players. To explain now is quite difficult. It's embarrassing."

Luke Shaw said he was embarrassed to be on the pitch and accused United of downing tools.

He said: "We need to look in the mirror. We are nowhere near it at the moment. It's embarrassing. I was embarrassed on the pitch. We need a long hard look at ourselves."
