Patrice Evra threatens to slap former team-mate Jerome Rothen


The spirit of Solskjaer was upon Manchester United as they put on another dramatic late European comeback on Wednesday night.

Trailing 2-0 from the first leg, it looked as though as Romelu Lukaku's brace was not going to be enough as it sandwiched Juan Bernat's 12th-minute strike. 

That was before Marcus Rashford ever so coolly slammed home an injury-time penalty thanks to a controversial VAR decision. 

And so, the Solskjaer fairytale continues. A stunned Parc des Princes was silent but for the familiar chorus of 'Ole's at the wheel' bellowing from the away end. 

In the stands, Paul Pogba could be seen celebrating too, alongside Patrice Evra.

However, the former United full-back's behaviour caused quite the stir. His former Monaco team-mate Jerome Rothen called him out in public for disrespecting PSG. 

Rothen criticised Evra 

Rothen, who also played for PSG, is quoted by The Sun: 

"Patrice Evra, who allows himself to make a video like that in the ground, the presidential box at PSG, in front of the Paris supporters, the shareholders of PSG ... But you respect who?

"Let him celebrate, OK. Let me know that he has marked the history of the club, OK. But respect!

"Whether he makes his videos outside or in the locker room, let him be happy, OK. We agree that he created history with Manchester United and not that of PSG.

"But it's a question of respect, of education. Frankly Patrice, you're my friend, but do not do that!"

Evra responds 

In response, Evra issued the video below. ESPN have provided a translation, with Evra warning the following: 

"I was told Jerome said some nasty things about me. I didn't believe it but then I was shown the video. Your reward, next time I see you, I'm going to slap you in the face.

"These aren't empty threats. You know we'll see each other eventually. You were always a salty p****.

"I remember when L'Equipe gave you a rating of five and our other teammates got seven, since you were paranoid of the ratings, you would call the journalist and ask: 'Why didn't you give me a seven?'

"Piece of s***. Stop telling bulls***, stop telling lies. Be careful, because we will cross roads eventually. I am sure we will."

Evra's videos are usually a lot more light-hearted than that, but you can hardly blame him - or anyone associated with United - for celebrating wildly at full-time.
