Evra claims that the Uruguayan forward racially abused him during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Anfield and the full back is adamant television replays will solidify his case.

Suarez has denied any wrongdoing and is said to be deeply ‘upset’ by the accusation but that isn’t going to stop the 30-year-old with Ferguson admitting the Frenchman unwavering in his desire to prove the Liverpool mans guilt.

He said: “I’ve spoken to Patrice. He is adamant he wants to follow it.”

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

“Obviously Patrice feels aggrieved at what was said to him. It rests in the hands of the FA now.” He added

Despite that one incident Ferguson praised the clubs supporters for adhering to his calls not to stand during the game during the lunchtime contest.

He also applauded both sets of fans for not abusing one other with chants regarding the Munich and Hillsborough disasters after pleading for them not to rekindle what had been sung in previous years.

The United boss said: “It is not an easy one for us. Everyone knows Manchester United and Liverpool have great responsibilities in terms of things that happen on the field.

“Saturday was terrific. Both sets of fans were good. There was not any of that silly chanting we have had in previous years. Both sets of fans deserve praise for that.”
