Patrice Evra has started work at Manchester United as he bids to complete his coaching badges.
Former France defender Evra announced his retirement from the game in July, having last played for West Ham in the 2017-18 season. The 38-year-old signalled his intention to pursue a coaching career and he is already on the path.
Posting on social media on Tuesday, Evra revealed he has teamed up with old club United to work on his badges. “I can’t describe how I feel right now!!!” Evra wrote on his Instagram & Twitter pages “Just wearing that training coach kit made me one of the most happy man thank you @manchesterunited for helping me to complete my coach badges!!! “Day one done.” Evra won 21 major trophies during his career, including five Premier League titles, three EFL Cups and the 2007-08 Champions League during his spell at Manchester United. Evra also represented some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Juventus, Monaco, Nice and Marseille.
In July, he a told an Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport; “I started training for the UEFA B Coaching License in 2013, now I want to finish it and then go on to get the UEFA A license.
In a year and a half, if everything goes well, I’ll be ready to lead a team.”
