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. Continue reading “Patrice Evra may Switch back to Old Trafford but in Different Position”
Juventus have had one of the most successful few years in club football.
They have retained the local league in Italy – the Serie A – for years now. Despite relative problems in advancing in Europe, they have not done too badly as they reached the Champions League final in 2015.
The club added players to its ranks in a bid to consolidate on the successes. Whilst they are not doing too badly, there have been a few stumbles and the team members have admitted it.
Fullback Patrice Evra pointed out that the team was taking its time as they were gelling.
“At the end of the day, it’s the objective that counts, which is to win the Scudetto and Champions League. As [Max] Allegri said, it’s not as if we’re going to achieve that today or tomorrow.
“I do agree that our style of football can be criticized. I want to win, in a calm way and that means controlling the game. We mustn’t think ‘oh we won and that’s the most important thing,’ then go out to laugh and joke in training,” Evra said.
He admitted that the new additions would require time for the team to be a cohesive unit. Continue reading “JUVENTUS PLAYERS ADMIT TO ISSUES IN CAMP”
5 Premier League and 1 Champions League titles are just some of the major pieces of silverware that Patrice Evra secured during his time as a player of Manchester United after spending 8 years with the English club.
Patrice Evra was reaching an age where it was just too much for the Premier League outfit and Louis van Gaal wanted to replace the French defender with some younger figures, which is why Evra was offloaded to Juventus for a bargain price of €1.2 million in a transfer that was completed on July 21st of 2014.
So far it has been a successful transfer for Patrice Evra as the French defender has turned into a regular starter for MassimilianoAllegri at Juventus. During his debut season with the Italian club, Evra made 21 appearances and was also featured in the Champions League matches of his new club.
Even though Patrice Evra still continues playing at a high level with Juventus and has lifted more pieces of silverware to his closet, the experienced defender has admitted in saying that making a switch away from Old Trafford was not an easy one and he believes that leaving a club with the caliber like Manchester United, it’s always a wrong decision to make.
