Patrice Evra was regularly pictured at Manchester United games as Ed Woodward’s guest last season and was in the stands in Paris as we came back to beat PSG. His celebrations with Paul Pogba upset quite a few people, with him showing his allegiances were with United over the club whose youth team he played for.
The former United left-back announced his retirement at the end of last season and has been completing his coaching badges over the summer. He was last at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground for one stage of his training alongside another former left-back, Ashley Cole.
This week, Evra has been in Manchester to continue with his badges at Carrington.
“I can’t describe how I feel right now!” he said on social media. “Just wearing the coach kit made me one of the most happiest man. Thanks Manchester United for helping me complete my coach badges. Day one… done!”
