Evra set for battle

"My biggest challenge is from myself," adds Evra. "I am not being arrogant but I am my biggest challenge. People forget very quickly how I got to become United’s left-back. There was Gabriel Heinze and Mikael Silvestre. When I hear people say Patrice never had someone to fight him for his place I just say they have to remember I fought with two great left-backs. They have bad memories!

"I will keep fighting, too. It is too easy for people to say that now we have bought another left-back, ‘Oh yes Patrice Evra will have to fight for his place now.’ Patrice Evra has always fought for his place. It doesn't matter if someone is there or if they're not, I will fight because you have to respect the shirt. When you play for Manchester United that is the big challenge."
