Patrice Evra is enjoying a good start to the season so far and was one of the few players who put in a good 90 minutes against Arsenal last weekend.
He says he isn’t thinking about being the best left-back in the world, rather what he can do to improve on his performances and form.
“I always think more can be done because I always want to develop,” said Evra. “I’m happy when people praise me but I love to work hard and I want to get even better. I always say the most difficult part of being a footballer isn’t making it to the top, it’s about staying at the top and making those tiny improvements that help you stand out from the rest. I’m happy with my current form but I know I can do better. I don’t think about trying to be the best left back in the world – I just think about improving all the parts of my own game and being better than Patrice Evra was a year ago.”
