Former Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra has revealed he has held talks with the club about a possible return in a coaching capacity.
Evra, who played his trade at Old Trafford between 2006-2014, is currently doing his coaching badges at the club and has been seen alongside CEO Ed Woodward in the stands on multiple occasions.
Speaking during his guest appearance on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Evra said: “I’m having some important talks behind the scenes and we’ll decide whether I will work for the club in a certain role or not we’ll see. But I want to make it clear because some people think I’m already working for United but no, there’s been some talks. But at the moment I’m only doing my badges.”
“If I come back to the club it’s not just to put my face on it, it’s to make sure that the club is going back to being the best club in the world. As a player, I sacrificed my life to succeed at this club. I don’t know which role I have but I will do the same,” the Frenchman added.
United had been undergoing a search to bring former players back to the club to work alongside the manager, rather than appointing a Director of Football, however, the search never materialised into anything with Darren Fletcher and Rio Ferdinand the two most prominently linked yet to delve into any role.
Given Evra’s focus on doing his coaching badges, it’s likely a coaching position will be in the forefront of his and the club’s mind over a board-role and the 38-year-old’s love and understanding of the Red Devils’ history would transmit well onto the current squad.
If Evra was to return to the club, what role would you want him in? Let us know in the comments below or by tweeting us @alIaboutunited.
