PATRICE EVRA has revealed how Liverpool sent him a personal letter apologising nine years after the Luis Suarez race row.
The former Manchester United defender opened up during an emotional Sky Sports interview on the racial abuse he received against the Reds in 2011.
Suarez was handed an eight-match ban for his role in the incident that later saw Liverpool players wearing T-shirts in support of the Uruguayan striker.
During his time on Monday Night Football in October, Evra revealed how hurt he was when he saw Liverpool players warming up with "Suarez 7" shirts in a game against Wigan.
Evra, 38, also claimed how he never received an apology from the club despite Suarez being found guilty by the Football Association.
It led to a direct apology from former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher who was one of the players in support of Suarez.
Carragher revealed that the club made a "massive mistake" and further added it was "massively wrong."
But it appears Liverpool have tried to make amends with Evra after he admitted he finally received an apology days after his interview.
Talking on Sky Sports, he said: "I was really touched about it.
"He told me he hoped it wasn't too late as the incident happened nine years ago.
"He got in contact about three days after the show and it was like thank you very much this letter is really touching my heart but I was really disappointed for such a long time about a big club like Liverpool supporting a cause like that.
"Now I can see real honest people working for this club and I now have even more respect for Liverpool because they are fighting against a problem for the human race.
"I was really pleased but I said 'I still hope you don't win the league!' three months ago.
"It was really important for me and even though we have a big rivalry between us but it showed Liverpool is a top class club."
