We all know that Patrice Evra is the king of Instagram.

The Juventus left-back has posted some incredible videos in the past few months, usually with him behaving bizarrely or dressed in some fancy-dress costume.

The Frenchman usually rounds it off with his now famous phrase of “I love this game”.

Honestly, if you’re not following him on Instagram, you’re missing out massively.

Today, the former United player took to the social media site to upload a slightly more serious message.

If you didn’t know, it's Ryan Giggs’ 39th birthday today.

The footballing world has wished the Welshman many happy returns and Evra was one of the many well-wishers.

Evra spent eight-and-half seasons at Old Trafford alongside Giggs, winning five league titles, three League Cups and a Champions League.

And the 35-year-old sent a lovely message to his former teammate. It read: “JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE!!! My favorite LEGEND ❤️️ When Giggsy was 39 years old and I saw him out in training even though I had a pain... I will ask the doctor to give me an anti-inflammatory to train because otherwise I would have been ashamed of myself to not train... #respect #motivation #legends #manchesterunited thanks for the best skill ever I love this game haahahahahah.”

Brilliant message, but the video accompanying it was even better.

Evra recalled a brilliant moment between the two players that occurred at Old Trafford in the Manchester derby, which he branded “the best skill ever”.

Some of you may remember when Evra was ready to take a throw-in and Giggs, rather cheekily, stood in front of him with his back turned so his teammate could throw it against him and bring the ball into play.

We’ll forget about the fact that Evra didn’t actually throw the ball from behind his head, meaning it should have actually been a foul throw. Evra and Giggs got away with it and we’re surprised we’re haven’t seen this more often in the Premier League.

While Evra is still playing football at the highest level, Giggs is seeking his first job in management. The former winger ended his 29-year association with the Red Devils in the summer but is still waiting for a club to give him a chance to begin his new career.
