Goal of the Day: E is for Evra
We've reached the letter 'E' in our A-Z Goal of the Day series, which stands for Evra.
“He has been a great performer and one of the best in the world. I remember it took him time to settle into the English game but outside of the Premier League you are not subjected to the same aerial battering you get here. But now he is attacking balls in the air like he's a Third Division commanding central defender with no fear!”(Gary Neville)
“Patrice Evra [had this] impressive habit of speaking loudly, to provoke, to instil confidence in the team. Today, I know he makes funny videos, but don't believe he is not a super professional and a super intelligent guy. He speaks five languages, he even speaks Korean! His physical appearance shows how professional he is, his mind is as strong as his body.”(Robin van Persie)
