PATRICE EVRA could not resist a dig at Liverpool on the day they lift the league trophy for the first time in 30 years.
The former Manchester United star made fun of the fact Jurgen Klopp’s side must hoist the Premier League silverware with no fans present.
Coronavirus has of course stopped supporters from going to grounds.

Evra won the league five times during his eight trophy-laden years at Old Trafford.
But speaking ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Chelsea at Anfield and the trophy presentation, he said: “After 30 years it was time for them to win the league.
“But I’m glad they won’t be able to celebrate with the fans.”
A few fans reacted with Fury to Evra’s comments.
One said: “Glad the fans won’t be able to attend, he does know there is a worldwide pandemic going on, what an idiot.”
Another commented: “Man United won’t be celebrating winning the Premier League with their fans either.”
A fellow user wrote: “What a sad little man!”
Another said: “He needed to say that just to calm his pain a little bit.”
