"It's amazing, honestly. It's always unbelievable when we come to Asia. You get off the plane and you are a little bit tired, but when you meet the people you just want to come back again because they give you such a nice welcome. It's a privilege to come here and meet the fans."

Video: Evra in Shanghai

Patrice Evra took a couple of minutes during a busy two-day schedule in China to talk to MUTV about the ever-welcoming reception he and the Reds get in the Far East.

Evra appeared at events in Shanghai on Wednesday and Beijing on Thursday, meeting fans and posing for photos with the Barclays Premier League trophy.

It was a long flight from Paris to China but, as the left-back says in our free video, it's always worth it because of the passion shown by United fans in Asia.
