“When he was playing for us he was such a professional,” says Evra. “He played with his heart. I know him. I still go to his house and I know he still loves United. I don’t want to make a problem for him with City, but it suited his identity here. Even when he wasn’t playing, he would come on and change the game. He would always fight. I tell him he should still be with us. If, one day, he wins the championship and the Champions League with City, I will say, “Fine, you made a good move Carlito”. But until then… I just speak the truth.”
