Evra answers the fans

Patrice Evra is one of Manchester United's most charismatic players, so when he sat down to answer questions from Reds fans on Facebook, you could expect varied and interesting responses...

Which season is your favourite since you arrived at United and why? - Zachary White
I have to say the 2007/08 one because we won the league and the Champions League. The football we played that season was fantastic and so exciting to watch. The team we had was unbelievable.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? - James Hanson
That's a good question. [Pauses] I would want to be able to make sure that all the children in the world were able to have food every day.

Which is the best country you've ever visited? - Firas Van Nir
I would say America and specifically Los Angeles. I was really surprised how much I liked it. It's somewhere I'll definitely be going back to.

What does it feel like to have captained Manchester United? - Dave McCarroll
It's a great feeling. I remember when Sir Alex told me I would be captain for the first time before our win in Wolfsburg [in December 2009]. He said, 'Pat, tomorrow you are the captain.' I said, 'Okay, I'll let you know [if that's okay] tomorrow'! [laughs] I am always so proud whenever I captain the team, it’s a fantastic honour. But there are many captains in our team.

How much do you miss your good friend Ji-sung Park? - Marc Richardson
A lot. I speak to him on the phone and I used to meet up with him when he was at QPR. We're still really close friends even though he's left United. We met up in the summer in Shanghai to film a TV commercial together and had lots of fun. I miss him every day because he's a really important person in my life.

You rarely miss a game and are hardly ever injured - what's your secret? - Adrian Nichols
The secret is I will rest when I retire! I just love this club and I want to play. I'm so lucky to be doing this job at a club like Manchester United. I am doing what I love and I feel good. I'm 32 now and I remember Ryan Giggs saying to me when he was 33, 'Pat my body has never felt better.' I think it's because you know your body better as you get older.
