Earlier this week David Beckham said he hoped to face Manchester United in the Champions League, on the road to winning the Champions League with AC Milan.
His wish was granted but Patrice Evra, who will likely mark Beckham in our European clash, wishing our former winger plays badly.
“I am very happy for David Beckham,” said Evra. “He did a lot of great things for Manchester United and I want to say to him “Welcome Home”. I have met him. He is a gentleman. He is a good person and a good professional. This is why Milan wanted him to go back there. I like that type of player. He is still one of the best right-footed players in the world. But I hope he plays badly and I intend to make sure he doesn’t do very well.”
