Patrice Evra jumps at the chance to search Jamie Carragher – .

Patrice Evra has taken aim at Jamie Carragher after Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Manchester United to a phenomenal victory over Arsenal on Thursday night.

Ronaldo, 36, scored twice in the second half, including a penalty winner, as the Red Devils beat their former Premier League rivals 3-2 at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese superstar celebrated both goals emphatically with his trademark celebration, perhaps sending a message to those who have criticized him this season.

Despite his tally of 12 goals in 16 games, experts including Carragher have pointed out Ronaldo’s lack of pressure and pace of work to get the ball back.

But Evra hit back at the Liverpool legend after Ronaldo’s latest exploits for United, telling him he had to ‘stay in his lane’.

The former United left-back added: “We talk a lot about this player (Ronaldo) and I don’t understand. Some players like Jamie Carragher have played 775 games. Cristiano scored his 801st goal today and these people are talking about Cristiano.

“Sometimes I think people just have to stay in their lane and I just don’t get it. Some people wake up and are allowed to talk about Cristiano. “

Meanwhile, Evra paid tribute to another of his former teammates as United confirmed Michael Carrick will step down from his coaching role after his three-game stint as interim manager.

“Wow. Thank you very much and goodbye, ”said the former French international. “I really thought he was going to stay at the club so I don’t know if it was a decision by Michael Carrick or a decision by the club. I am a little surprised by this decision. “

During his post-match interview, Carrick explained that he would like to spend time with his family after 15 years in various roles at United.

Reacting to the news, compatriot and Evra co-expert Thierry Henry added: “I am also shocked and surprised, but you have to know that when you bring someone new it can bring people with them. and you have to figure it out.

“I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, but when you employ someone they may want to work with someone they’re used to working with so I can understand that side of the argument.” “

As Carrick leaves the club, Ralf Rangnick begins his six-month tenure as interim manager with a game against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
