Patrice Evra explains his reasons for leaving Manchester United

Published 11 Comments

Patrice Evra may end Saturday with a second Champions League title among his list of career successes, however the Juventus defender still does not believe that would make his decision to leave Manchester United the right one.

Evra will line up for Juventus in Berlin against a rampant Barcelona side and victory for either in the German capital would ensure they clinch a treble success having dominated in Italy and Spain respectively this season.

It would be quite a maiden campaign in Turn for Evra even were Juventus not to triumph on the European stage but, despite this, the veteran Frenchman still looks back on those halcyon Manchester United days rather misty eyed.

Evra himself took the decision to depart Old Trafford a year ago after eight glorious years as a Manchester United player and, he concedes, no amount of success would mean he made the right choice.

“It was really difficult for myself to leave Man United but I left for a personal choice,” Evra told Sky Sports.

“It doesn’t matter if you go somewhere and you’re still winning - it’s always the wrong decision to leave a club like Manchester United.”

That is certainly quite the claim from the 34-year-old and, if you ask us, three trophies this term including the Champions League - a competition Manchester United were not even in - does rather vindicate his decision to leave.

Was Patrice Evra right to leave Manchester United? Let us know below!
