Former United Player Retires From Football

Former United left-back Patrice Evra has retired from football aged 38. The Frenchman joined the club in a £5.5million deal from AS Monaco in January 2006. 

Evra spent 7-and-a-half successful seasons at Old Trafford. He won the Champions League, five Premier League titles and three League Cups during his time at the club between 2007 and 2014.

Evra has now called time on his playing career at the age of 38.

“My playing career is officially over,” Evra told Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday.

“I started training for the UEFA B Coaching License in 2013, now I want to finish it and then go on to get the UEFA A license.”

Evra played 379 games for United between 2006 and 2014 before moving to Juventus.

Evra left Manchester United as a legend and speaking on Paul Pogba who wants to leave the club, Evra said:

“I don’t want to blame all the players because I think that some players are here [at United] and they themselves don’t even know why they are here,” Evra told Sky Sports.

“I think [Pogba] will leave, because you need to feel the love when you play somewhere, you need to be committed. If Paul decides to stay another year and then leave, or stay another few years, maybe the fans will love him because he is committed.”
