Patrice Evra wants Manchester United to lift the Champions League trophy - as a mark of respect to Sir Alex Ferguson.

The veteran Scottish manager is hoping to win the competition for a second time on Wednesday when they face Chelsea in the final which would clinch the double after they retained their Barclays Premier League crown.

"I think a manager like him deserves to win the Champions League more than once," said the France full-back. "This is why I hope that we can deliver the gift of the trophy to him out of respect for what he has done for Manchester United."
