Evra Spurred On By Nightmare

Patrice Evra has not forgotten his United debut. In a sense, it was unforgettable: he was frighteningly out of his depth against, erm, Trevor Sinclair... Fergie took him off at half-time and nobody would have envisaged that he would go on to become the best left-back in the world.

'I remember that game very, very well,' he said.

'At one point the ball went out from a corner and I remember thinking, Pat, what are you doing here?

'The game was so quick, everyone was so strong and the whole thing was just too difficult.'


We lost 3-1 and though it would be unfair to blame Evra for everything that happened that day, he was certainly culpable on many occasions. Now of course it's a different story: he's strong, quick and reliable, offering flair in attack as well. Fortunately he had the courage, the guts to stay and fight.

'I really wanted to play for this club, so I just decided to work even harder and thankfully, it has worked,' he said.

Now he gets to visit Eastlands again, Evra's hoping for his second win there. A very different player to the one who looked like a rabbit frozen in the headlights almost three years ago, we can be reasonably confident that he'll be up to his task.
