Patrice Evra urges Manchester United to hire him and other former legends


It's all going wrong at Manchester United.

The Red Devils came into this season with aspirations of finishing top four and qualifying for the Champions League, but after this weekend's action, that seems like a pipe dream. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were beaten 2-0 by West Ham at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday afternoon and it's fair to say the visitors were absolutely dreadful. 

Andriy Yarmolenko scored the first goal after sneaking behind United's backline before Aaron Cresswell curled in a delightful free-kick six minutes from time. 

The result leaves the Manchester club eighth in the Premier League, 10 points behind leaders Liverpool. 

After the match, fans and pundits alike were quick to turn on Solskjaer and the team. During his appearance on Sky Sports, Roy Keane didn't hold back. 

"Listen, I’ve known Ole a long time, one of the nicest lads you’ll ever meet, and I can tell just by his eyes he’s fuming. I think he’s disgusted," the former club captain said.

"We look at the first goal, it’s about the basics of football, closing people down, sprinting to people. The first goal summed up where Man United are at the moment.

"The reality is, they’re just not good enough a lot of these players."

So, who can save United now? Well, Patrice Evra wants to give it a crack. He took to Instagram on Sunday night to send a message to the club's board. 

"I think it’s time to get our hands dirty! Manchester United board, are you ready to let us help you guys?" he posted, with an image of him kissing the badge. 

Naturally, that got supporters excited and some started to call for Evra to take control of transfers. He seems keen too and even suggested Paulo Dybala would be his first signing.

Very exciting indeed. It's unclear if United will even listen to the call from their former player, but bringing in a few legends to support Solskjaer might help them rediscover their identity.
