Patrice Evra buzzing about returning to Old Trafford for Michael Carrick’s testimonial

by Sam Peoples

Patrice Evra can’t hide how happy he is to be coming home to Old Trafford this summer to take part in Michael Carrick‘s testimonial.

Evra is part of Manchester United’s 2008 UEFA Champions League winning team and will line-up alongside Carrick as well as other legends like Edwin van der Sar under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson who will also return to the dugout.

It’s going to be a wonderful, nostalgic atmosphere in a match full of absolute legends and I think it is safe to say Evra is looking forward to it as much as the fans are.

It might have been right at the time for Evra to leave United but I really miss him having him at the club. What a personality he was, what a natural leader. We’ve not ever replaced Evra and I think we’ll struggle because personalities like him are rare in football.
