The racism row between Patrice Evra and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez striker shows no sign of dying down with the French defender telling his boss Alex Ferguson that he wants to pursue his case with the FA.

The Manchester United left back was left fuming after Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at Anfield on Saturday, claiming in an interview with Canal Plus that the Liverpool striker had racially abused him on a number of occasions during the game.

Despite the French international’s claims that TV replays will prove his claims right, Suarez has denied them and has been backed by Liverpool.

In the build up to the Champions League encounter with Otelul Galati in Romania tomorrow Ferguson has spoken with Evra and the defender confirmed his intention to take action.

“I spoke to Patrice today. He is adamant he wants to follow it on,” said Ferguson.

“It is not something we would want to level against Liverpool and it is not against Liverpool.

“Obviously Patrice feels very aggrieved at what was said to him.

“It rests in the hands of the FA now.”
