Patrice Evra demands Man Utd replace the board NOT manager alongside Instagram post of himself riding a camel
MANCHESTER UNITED hero Patrice Evra has called on the club's board to be sacked before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer loses his job.
The Norwegian is once again under pressure following two disappointing defeats in a week.

The prospect of Mauricio Pochettino being asked to take over at Old Trafford continues to loom over Solskjaer.
But the manager's old team-mate believes there are bigger problems at Manchester United.
Evra considered the argument for sacking Solskjaer in an Instagram post he put online on Friday.
Sat atop a camel while in a Red Devils top, he captioned the snap: "New manager..?🤣🤣 What about new board."
The people in charge of the club, particularly executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the Glazer family, have long been criticised for failing to deliver success since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure.
A quiet summer transfer window broke out into a late spending spree, which saw Amad Diallo, Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani among those brought in as the deadline approached.
Questions have been asked over who exactly is calling the shots in the transfer market with newboy Donny van de Beek yet to start a Premier League game.
Saturday lunchtime's trip to Everton is considered yet another key moment in Solskjaer's time in the dugout.
But the 47-year-old says he is confident that he will keep his job regardless of the result.
He told reporters: “Yeah, why shouldn't I be? If I don't trust my belief and values and staff's quality and players' quality, who else should?
“I don't look at one or two results and fall like a house of cards, it's a setback, definitely.
“But there's been too much made of not scoring against Arsenal and Chelsea, there's been nothing in those games and it's not long ago we were the best thing since sliced bread against Leipzig and PSG.”
This is not the first time Evra has slammed the way United is being run.
As a five-time Premier League winner in almost a decade with the club, the 39-year-old has never hid his desire to see the Red Devils excel.
Evra has previously criticised Woodward for how his move to Juventus was handled.
And the former left-back was left stunned by United's shock 6-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham earlier in the season.
He said on Sky Sports: "I’m a positive person and I never want to talk about United because when you tell the truth it can hurt and I’m passionate and I love my club.
"I know you have to have some filter when you talk on TV, but it’s a shambles.
"Tonight, no-one has any excuse, they let down all the United fans. And I don’t care about the result because I’ve been beaten 6-1.
"It’s just about every year it’s the same story. I feel now what all the United fans [feel]."
