Patrice Evra has revealed that before Sir Alex Ferguson retired, he told our former vice-captain that he would make a great manager one day.
Interestingly, Evra claims Fergie only singled out himself and Giggs as players with potential to succeed as managers.
Before he left, Ferguson called me into his office. He said to me, ‘Pat, I’m going to tell you something very important. There are two players in this team that are going to become great trainers: Ryan Giggs and you.’ So, I got some of my coaching credentials while still in Manchester. Now I want to get my coaching diploma and then we’ll see.
