The defender was part of a players' revolt against then-boss Raymond Domenech following Nicolas Anelka's exclusion from the tournament after a dispute with the national trainer. Evra received a five-game suspension for his part in the strike, and his club coach is of the opinion that such punishment was unjust.
"I spoke with Patrice at the time of the World Cup in South Africa. He suffered a lot - unfairly, in my opinion," Ferguson stated in an interview with RMC Sport.
"He was the spokesman for the entire group. He only expressed his personal view. But he was punished."

He continued: "[Evra] is very happy since Laurent Blanc took the reigns, and is satisfied with the results France have achieved.
"The France national team are more balanced and have again become a winning side. But the two favourites for Euro 2012 are Spain and Germany."
