A PLEA FROM PATRICE

United legend Patrice Evra has urged supporters to watch the film as soon as possible and, in a brilliant video, revealed one of the many reasons why he loves Sir Alex. “I hope you are all super excited about the documentary on Sir Alex Ferguson, the boss himself,” says the Frenchman. “Don't miss it, he is such an important person and an important figure. 

“I think you are going to know more about the way he grew up, talking about his father, so don't miss it. Also, Ferguson taught me so much in my life and I have a little story I would like to explain to people so they will understand the kind of relationship I have with the boss. It is just amazing. 

“One game, we were winning 2-0 against Tottenham and I was playing a great game. At half-time, I remember being back in the dressing room and everyone was like, 'wow Patrice you are on fire' and they were clapping. So Sir Alex just sat and he didn't talk for five minutes, and when he did this you knew somebody was in trouble. Someone was going to get the ‘Hairdryer’.

 

“He looked at me and said, 'Patrice, are you okay, do you think you are having a good game?' I said yes and I started looking around, it wasn't a prank and everyone was surprised. He said, 'why did you pass the ball back to van der Sar?' I explained it was because I didn't have any solutions forward and it was just one ball. I always play it forward. He said, 'if you pass the ball again to van der Sar, Vidic or Ferdinand, I will take you out!'. 

“I was fuming and looking at him, wondering if it is real. He destroyed me and I didn't like the injustice, but I didn't say anything in front of everyone because I respected his authority. The next day I went to Carrington and I knocked on the door to his office. 'Hello, who is it, oh Patrice, what do you want son?'. I said, 'what do I want, boss what happened yesterday?'

“He said, 'Patrice, you played one of your best games since you signed for United, but Cristiano was starting to make some flicks, some skill and the team was relaxed - I know you were the best player so I attacked you to send a message to the other players'. I said, 'boss, please, next time just let me know' and he said 'get out of my office you French so and so!’ And that's why I love this game!”
