Patrice Evra criticised for 'patronising' reaction to Eni Aluko's analysis on ITV

Evra said Aluko’s analysis of Costa Rica was “very good” before clapping his hands.

FORMER MANCHESTER UNITED and France defender Patrice Evra has been criticised following his reaction to Eni Aluko’s analysis during her role as a pundit on ITV on Sunday.

Evra and former England international Aluko were panelists alongside Henrik Larsson on ITV for their coverage of the Group E fixture between Costa Rica and Serbia on Sunday afternoon.

After Aluko detailed how outsiders Costa Rica were defensively solid but lacked goals up front with Joel Campbell named on the bench and Marco Urena out of form, Evra applauded the former England international’s analysis — an act which has been roundly criticised on social media.

Evra responded to the analysis, saying “very good” before clapping his hands in a way which many deemed patronising against Aluko.
