Patrice Evra: Former France star opens up about sexual abuse claims
Patrice Evra believes he was the target of two separate rapes by two different men in the 1990s, but admits he made no complaints of the incidents at the time.
Evra has told his story in an emotional interview in which he says he still fears the men who carried out the crimes by making false allegations.
The former France defender only spoke out after being confronted with evidence including a statement from one of the alleged perpetrators of the attacks.
Evra said he believed the men were connected with a company called “Futurama”, who he has since discovered is run by an individual he believes was a friend of his and that was also behind the claims.

Evra’s claims have also been backed up by the French Football Federation, who told the BBC he is “not a credible victim”.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Evra claims that he was groped “by at least two males” and suffered violence.
He said: “It was on a beach in Nice and the first one was a friend of mine, the second man was my friend’s brother.
“The second male came and took my bathing suit. They didn’t say a word. Not a word. I told my friend to get rid of him. I was alone with him. There was no condom because they didn’t want him to come in my house and accuse me.
Evra also claims that he had sex with one of the men at a hotel to which he arrived by taxi, while the second man slept in a car outside the hotel.
