Manchester United defender Patrick Evra spoke to Sky Sport after his side progressed to the Champions League final. He said:
Even today we have proved again that we are a strong team. They all spoke about this beautiful game of Arsenal, but unlike them, we allowed fewer goals and won, in addition to playing well.
Today, the result was just, we also could have won 3-0. In football, beautiful play is not everything. We are 11 men, they are 11 children; this is the difference. We are much more mature and have more confidence.
After he [Ronaldo] won the Golden Ball, people criticized him for a while because he wasn’t at his best, but in reality he has never played badly. Rooney? Playing alongside him is great; he is a player who manages to do everything.
