Patrice Evra is a France international football player who currently features for the English and European giants Manchester United. He plays as a left-back or a left wing-back.
Evra progressed through the youth system at Paris Saint-Germain and actually played as a striker during his teenage years. He commenced his career at Marsala in 1998 and played for them for one season and played alongside Thierry Henry.
Evra then played the 1999-2000 season for the Italian Serie B side Monza but featured in just three league matches. He returned to French Ligue 2 in the summer of 2000 for Nice. After two impressive seasons for Nice as a left back, AS Monaco signed the player who quickly became a vital piece of the Monaco jigsaw that reached the 2004 UEFA Champions League final.
In the summer of 2006, Manchester United signed Evra from Monaco for 5.5 million pounds on a three-and-a-half-year contract. He quickly settled into the first team at Old Trafford and has won the Premier League title in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011 and the UEFA Champions League in 2008.
Evra continued to achieve success for United and established himself as one of the best left-backs in the world. He won the league title again with the Red Devils in 2013 and helped his side reach the final of the Champions League in 2009 and 2011.
Evra made his international debut for France in 2003 and played for them at the Euro 2008 finals. He was also part of the French squad for the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa and also represented his country at the Euro 2012 finals.
