How Evra escaped the fighting streets of Paris

One day Patrice Evra will write a book. He has an inspirational story to tell by a footballer who offers a rare insight into life at Old Trafford under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson. Evra is a wonderful story teller who articulates as well as anyone what it means to play for Manchester United and arguably the world’s greatest manager. Fluent in five languages and now working hard to master Korean so that he can converse with his close friend Ji-Sung Park, he tackles a large variety of subjects. This is a lengthy, exclusive interview by Matt Lawton which was published in the Daily Mail on May 1st 2010.
