Patrice Evra reflects on tough upbringing and reliving favourite game in latest UTD Podcast


He added: “I’m not a victim, I’m not feeling sad. I don’t want any people to give me much love, because I’m telling those things. I’m just telling my true story. I just want to motivate more kids to never give up no matter what will happen. If you believe you’re going to become someone, if you walk out, if you believe in yourself, you’re going to do it. That’s it.” 

Things of course did get better for Evra at United and he went on to make over 350 appearances in all competitions and win 10 major honours before he departed for Juventus in 2014.

However, his debut against Man City is still a match that he would like to relive.

“My first game!” he replied. “My first game, because people ask me, ‘What’s your best moment?’ And they expect me to say something. But I will say the derby, the first game, because everything was new, I received a big slap on my face. I thought I was a big player! My agent didn’t believe in me in front of his wife, Ferguson giving me the hairdryer… 

“It just made me realise, ‘Hey, you will have to work really hard here if you want to be a United player’. So that’s the moment that I want to relive, because it was a hard moment, but such a positive moment.”
