Patrice Evra confirms Manchester United talks over potential role

Manchester Evening News Sports 1 month ago

Former Manchester United star Patrice Evra has confirmed talks between him and the Reds over a potential role at the club moving forward.

Evra featured for United from 2006 to 2014 before leaving for Juventus, with the ex-France international ending his career with stints at Marseille and then West Ham.

The 38-year-old has since retired from football and started taking his coaching badges amid sightings with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward during a number of matches last season.

Evra has since been at the United training ground doing his coaching badges and during an appearance on Monday Night Football before Arsenal's clash with Sheffield United, the former defender opens up on his current situation.

The former left-back confirmed he has been in talks with the club but stopped short of specifying the specific role which he has been discussing amid United's search for a Director of Football.

“I want to make it clear because people think I am already working for United, but no I am just doing my coaching badges," Evra told Sky Sports.

“I am having some important talks behind the scenes so we will decide whether I work for the club in a certain role. The problem is I want to do everything, but in life you can’t do everything.

“But yeah, a role where I can put my hands dirty. If I come back to the club, it's not just to put my face on it, it's because I want my club to go back to the best club in the world.


“As a player I sacrificed my life to succeed at this club, so I don’t know which role I will have but I will do the same."
