"I think Martinez likes him. I think he will suit their style of play."
She said: “I absolutely don’t think I have done anything wrong at all.
“I have worked extremely hard for the party over the last two years and particularly over the last few months when I wrote the manifesto.”
She added: “Unfortunately when you get into these situations and the backstabbing starts, it is quite hard to know who is pointing what finger, but nobody should question my loyalty to the party or to Nigel.”
She said she had tried to persuade the Ukip leader to stay on.
"You cannot avoid them because football is with physical resistance and also a little bit of luck, or you are unlucky maybe.
"Rafael has come back but cannot play.
"Evans is a question mark and Pereira is with Brazil U20s."
In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Express, Miss Evans said Ukip would work with the Tories if it matched the manifesto commitment to spend two per cent of the UK’s GDP on defence. She said other potential negotiations would involve the Tories agreeing to a rapid referendum on EU membership, as well as their pledge not to levy tax on those earning the minimum wage.
Miss Evans expects to play a key role in any talks, which may begin as early as tomorrow and focus on a post-election pact. She revealed: “Yes, we could work with the Conservatives. But we couldn’t work with Labour while they refuse to have an EU referendum.”
She faces an uphill struggle to win power in Shrewsbury but said: “We will also get a lot of second places and that will be a launch pad for 2020.”
She has been tipped as a future leader and said: “If Nigel Farage did stand down for whatever reason and he asks me to stand then I would.”
Good work, Steve!
The site - which pushes for Evans' conviction to be quashed - includes pixelated footage of his 19-year-old victim from the hotel in Rhyl, north Wales, where the rape took place.
It is understood her father made a complain which prompted the Attorney General to ask the Crown Prosecution Service to examine whether any laws had been broken over potentially identifying his victim - who has anonymity for life.
Ed Beltrami, the Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS Wales, said today there was insufficient evidence to charge anyone.
"Each case is considered on its own facts and merits. In order to undertake a prosecution, the law would require us to prove that it was 'likely' that a member of the public could identify the victim from the CCTV footage posted on the website."
He ruled that because the footage was pixelated and there was nothing else "sufficiently distinctive" in the footage it was unlikely a member of the public could identify the victim.
Mr Beltrami added: "Jigsaw identification was also considered; namely whether or not this CCTV, in conjunction with information about the victim that was already in the public domain, could lead to identification.
"It was decided that a member of the public would still be unlikely to identify the victim were they aware of both the CCTV and other information."
However he warned that the decision "does not imply any finding concerning guilt or criminal conduct".
Former Sheffield United and Wales star Evans, 26, was jailed for five years in 2012 and released last year.
He has always maintained his innocence and is fighting to take his case to appeal.
On Monday his legal team submitted two interviews to the Criminal Cases Review Commission - which were said to "further strengthen" his case.
Evans has been unable to resume his football career since his release due to public pressure.
His victim, who is entitled to lifelong anonymity over the attack, is said to have been forced into hiding and had to move home five times after being 'outed' by his supporters three years ago.
In January Evans said: "Whilst I continue to maintain my innocence, I wish to make it clear that I wholeheartedly apologise for the effect that that night in Rhyl has had on many people, especially the woman concerned."
In the club’s opening two years at their new the AESSEAL New York Stadium, both of their final games of the season ended in celebratory pitch invasions - firstly after winning promotion from League Two in 2013 and then by reaching the League One play-off final after beating Preston last year.
A win against Reading could lead to similar scenes as the Millers would achieve safety for what would be the second time in Evans’ mind.
The club could yet still appeal the league’s decision to dock them three points, even though that could end up being academic.
“It’s a big opportunity to secure our Championship status. They can take our points but they can’t take our desire.”
