Unai Emery Pleased with Cavani’s Brace against St Etienne

Paris St Germain manager Unai Emery praised the performance of striker Edinson Cavani in the recent match against St Etienne.


The Uruguayan striker was expected to be sidelined upon the arrival of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar this transfer window. The former has joined PSG on a loan deal which will be converted into a permanent move for £ 166 million next year, while Neymar has joined the club in a £ 196 million deal from Barcelona. Neymar has already had a major impact in the performances of PSG, but it wasCavani who stole the limelight in the game against St Etienne.

There was nervousness before the match, as St Etienne were coming into the game on the back of an excellent start to the season which has seen them win the opening three matches. As a result, PSG were fearing a repeat of last season’s situation when Monaco came out of the blue to win the league title with a younger and inspiring squad. However, there was no slack from PSG as they managed to get a 3-0 win. Cavani came up with the opening goal from the spot, while Thiago Motta doubled the advantage. Cavani came up with a second-half goal to come from the three points for PSG and another emphatic victory. (more…)

After spending 9 seasons as a player of Manchester United in a time-lapse that initiated on January of 2006 and reached it´s end on July of 2014 which is when he completed his transfer to the Italian outfit Juventus.

However, according to the veteran player, Evra stated that he was on the verge or at least thinking about making a return to Old Trafford and one of the reasons of why he was so tempted on coming back to the English Premier League club was due to Jose Mourinho.

“I need coaches like Ferguson, coaches with an iron fist, because I work like that. Jose knows it. We sometimes send each other texts. I won’t hide it; I almost went back to Manchester. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen. I won’t go into details, but of course I would have loved to have played for Mourinho.” Marseille´s Patrice Evra said. (more…)

Patrice Evra almost made a return to Old Trafford

Patrice Evra spent 8 years performing with Manchester United and during that spell, the French player was able to lift a few major pieces of silverware including: 5 Premier League and 1 UEFA Champions League trophies just to name a few of the more well-known.


For a period of time, Evra turned into the captain of the English Premier League which shows just how much of an impact and leadership skills he had to be given the captaincy armband of a top European club.

All of these mentioned titles were obtained when Sir. Alex Ferguson was at the helm of Manchester United and even though Patrice Evra had the privilege of working alongside one of the managers who is considered to be the best in the history of the sport, the French player has recently stated that he would’ve liked to play under the tutelage of the current Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Patrice Evra Reveals Reasons behind Paul Pogba’s Move to Manchester United

Patrice Evra is seen as one of the players who are still loyal to Manchester United despite several years after having left the club.


After joining from Monaco back in 2006, the left back became one of the important members of Sir Alex Ferguson’s team that became hugely successful during that period. The club were able to see off the challenge from Chelsea in emphatic manner. However, the club has been unable to come even close to challenging for the major honours in the last few years. In order to elevate the club back to the top places, the club has spent a huge sum of money on several players. Yet, they are all dwarfed by the signing of Paul Pogba in the summer.

The Frenchman joined Manchester United in a deal worth around £ 89 million, which has made him the most expensive player in the world. (more…)

Patrice Evra may Switch back to Old Trafford but in Different Position

Even if Patrice Evra switches back to his old home Old Trafford, he will have a different role this time as the bosses at United want his contribution only off the field and not on it.


Evra’s coaching services have been sought by the Red Devils’ top brass, but, the Frenchman has not given a nod to it yet.

The reason Evra has not committed to this new offer on the table is the uncertainty that he is in regarding his playing career.

The veteran defender can’t quite make up his mind if it’s the right time for him to stop playing and start helping the emerging younger generation.

Even though he is comfortably past his best, he still finds himself to be chased by some clubs who want to have him as a player; West Ham for example is after him. (more…)

EVRA SENDS HEARTFELT MESSAGE TO FAMILIES OF CHAPECONSE CRASH VICIMS

Former Manchester United player Patrice Evra sent a heartfelt message to families of the 71 Chapecoense plane crash victims through a video he posted online.


The Juventus defender joined to send messages to families of the victims – an incident that has moved world football.

The incident happened on Monday, immediately plunging 71 families in grief while shocking the football world. La Mia 2933 was carrying a Brazilian football team – Chapecoense – that had enjoyed a fairy tale story in the build-up to a regional final game. The plane crashed into a mountainside after it ran out of fuel.

The 77 persons on the plane included the football team, 24 journalists, and club officials. The football team was poised to play Atletico Nacional for the Copa Sudamericana. Only six people survived the crash, but are in terrible conditions following the crash.

“Hi, I just wanted to share with all of the wives, families and children that have lost their partners in this great tragedy. So Instead of just posting a picture on my Instagram, I ask that everybody can help these families in their prayers, with their support and also financially. God bless all these men and women. Amen,” the player’s message read.

Brazil have reportedly asked that Columbia play a friendly game in a bid to raise funds for families of the crash victims. The friendly match is slated for late January, even though the date is a tight one.

“But we don’t know if they will be able to come because of the dates. But a friendly will take place, against someone else if not Columbia, probably on either January 22 or 25. The proceeds from the match will be sent to the families of the players, the staff and those involved with Chapecoense who died in the crash,” a statement about the game read.
