Patrice Evra has been chosen as Manchester United captain in the absence of Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand.

Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t take the responsibility lightly.

“I do what I have to on the pitch. I’m not like Ferguson’s son. But as soon as I’m not good, Ferguson will give me the ‘hairdryer’,” said Evra. “That he gave me the captain’s armband is enormous. I am truly very proud to wear it. I didn’t want to let him down.”
