Stateside pre-season is a major plus for Champions

Manchester United full back Patrice Evra can't wait to tour America as part of the Red Devils' pre-season plans this summer.

The French international has revealed his love for all things Stateside, and is set to feature for Sir Alex Ferguson's side during their five game tour in July.

The MLS all-stars, Barcelona, New England Revolution, Seattle Sounders and Chicago Fire are all on the agenda during a trip that will last around three weeks, and Evra is hoping the Old Trafford outfit can make an impression in-front of the watching fans.

"I'll be visiting some fantastic US cities on this summer's tour with United and, after the great things my team-mates told me about last year's trip, I'm really looking forward to it. The lads told me we had great support last year and I'm not surprised," the left-sided defender told the official Manchester United website.

"Our fans are unbelievable and they are quite simply everywhere. I think you could go to the end of the earth and still see a United fan!

"It'll be great to meet some more fans this summer and we need to make sure we put on a good show."


Ferguson recently heralded the decision for his Manchester United side to tour the USA again, and believes the trip will provide great practice for the upcoming Barclays Premier League season.

“We’re finding it increasingly more exciting every time we come to the States," said the Manchester United manager.

“It’s my intention to bring all the squad apart from Valencia and Chicharito, who will both be on international duty."
