top facts about Patrice Evra

, in this part, we would have a list of his career statistics.

Patrice Evra career

Evra started his football career playing for CO Les Ulis, his hometown club. He was taken to the club after playing in the streets for years by friend Tshymen Buhanga, who told the club coach, "I bring you the new Romário." Evra spent a year at the club under the watch of coach Jean-Claude Giordanella, who later became the club's vice-president. "The player was described by Giordanella as "quieter, almost shy.

He was a nice boy. Evra initially played football in the position of striker and underwent trials with professional clubs Rennes and Lens while studying at Les Ulis. Evra was dismissed largely because of his height after the completion of the tests.

He joined CSF Brétigny, an amateur club located in nearby Brétigny-Sur-Orge, in 1993. Evra has gone on trials with many clubs, most prominently


and Paris Saint-Germain, close to his stint with Les Ulis.

Ultimately, he was signed and turned into a winger by the latter. Evra trained for a few months at Camp des Loges but was later released.

Evra returned to Brétigny and was invited by a friend to play in an indoor five-a-side football competition organized by the Juvisy-Sur-Orge sports center, despite struggling to persuade PSG officials of his potential as a footballer.

He was noticed by an Italian scout while playing, who gave him the chance to engage in a trial with the professional club Torino. Evra spent ten days training with the club and was given a spot in the club's youth team after the trial.

He was then confronted by the Marsala Series C1 club, whose officials drew him to the possibility of becoming a professional. Evra picked the latter choice and, at age 17, signed his first professional contract. With the club, Evra spent just one season, playing in 27 overall matches and scoring six goals.

After that, after possible transfers to Serie A clubs Roma



fell through, he transferred to the Serie B level to join Monza for a €250,000 transfer fee. Just in three matches did Evra feature, making his debut on 29 August 1999 in a 2-1 away loss to Alzano. After one season, he left the club after being dissatisfied by his lack of appearances.


Evra returned to France to represent the professional team


in Ligue 2, French football's second tier. He played much of his first season with the club in the amateur Championnat de France, the fourth level of French football, playing with his reserve side. He played in the squad mainly as a midfielder and featured in 18 matches, scoring one goal.

Midway through the season, he was called into the first team by manager Sandro Salvioni. He was given the number 26 jersey and made his club debut in the team's 7-2 loss to Châteauroux on 7 October 2000, starting in the place of left-winger.

During the campaign, Evra made four more starts, featuring as a backup in losses to Cannes, Nancy and starting in the team's 3-0 victory over Laval and 1-0 loss to Le Havre in the season's final match. In the tournaments, Evra played mainly as a center forward.

Evra moved to the number 17 jersey in the 2001–02 season and was permanently promoted to the first team. He started in the team's 2-1 victory in the team's first league match of the season against Laval.

Left-back Jean-Charles Cirilli, who started in place of regular starter José Cobos, suffered an injury at the end of the match, causing the player to be replaced.

As a result, Evra fell back into the role and played in the position the rest of the match. Evra was told by Salvioni after the match, due to injuries to both Cobos and Cirilli, that he will take over the role.

Evra made his debut in the team's ensuing league match against Strasbourg, a 3-0 loss. He featured regularly throughout the campaign and was also permitted to play his favorite left-wing position after the return of Cobos.

With the club in the middle of a promotion battle, Evra scored in his last match with the club, a 4-3 victory over Laval, his first and only goal for Nice. The victory put Nice in third position, which culminated for the first time since 1997 in the club-winning promotion to Ligue 1.

Evra was selected to the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) Ligue 2 Team of the Year in the left-back position for his achievements.


Evra was hired by Nice's Derby de la Côte d'Azur rivals Monaco following the season. Evra was told by manager Didier Deschamps that he can only play as a left-back while preferring to play as a left-winger again; Evra has since praised Deschamps for allowing him to become a stronger defender after initially defining the role as not being pleasant.

In a back four composed of center-backs Rafael Márquez and Sébastien Squillaci and right-back Franck Jurietti, Evra was put.

In the opening match of the 2002–03 season against Troyes, Evra was given the number 3 jersey and made his debut for the club. In a 4-0 victory, he played the whole match. Evra scored his first goal for the club on 28 September, scoring the match-winner against Rennes in a 2-1 victory. In a 3-0 away victory over Le Havre on 22 March 2003, he scored his second goal of the season.

The victory allowed Monaco, as the club was in a three-way fight with Lyon and Marseille, to retain its place at the top of the table.

In May,


gave Lyon first place in terms of temperature, resulting in Lyon being proclaimed champions for the second time in its history. Monaco ended the season in second place, which secured the club a UEFA Champions League debut. For its success in the Coupe de la Ligue, where it reached the final, the club was also awarded nationally.

In the team's 4-1 victory over Sochaux, Evra played in the series. The title of the league cup gave Evra the first important honor of his career.

Manchester United

On 27 December, French sources announced that Manchester United was interested in signing Evra. Evra announced on 3 January 2006, amid speculation of Monaco reaching a transfer deal with Internazionale, that he preferred to travel to England to join Manchester United.

Manchester United formally released a trade offer for the player the next day. An agreement for Evra was signed on 6 January, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson reported. Four days later, when Evra joined the club for a transfer fee of about £ 5.5 million and agreed to a three-and-a-half-year deal, the transfer was official.

The emergence of Evra signaled the intention of Ferguson to shore up the club's defense that had struggled since Gabriel Heinze was sidelined. Evra affirmed after joining the club that Manchester was his only potential destination: "In the talks with Arsenal, Liverpool or Real Madrid, I was not very eager to go forward.

In the past two seasons, they all spoke with my agent. But it was over for me. I just wanted to hear about Manchester, as I said to the Monaco officials."

Now we want to read more top facts about Patrice Evra.


Evra joined Italian Serie A club Juventus on a two-year deal on 21 July 2014. Since Juventus qualified for the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League, the fee was £ 1.2 million, which increased to £ 1.5 million. He scored his first goal for the club on 14 December 2014, opening up Sampdoria with a 1-1 home draw.

On 6 June 2015, in the 2015 UEFA Champions League final, Evra started for Juventus as Juventus was defeated 3-1 at Berlin's Olympiastadion by Barcelona. The game was the fifth final of the Champions League in which he had played, and the loss meant that he was the first player to lose four finals of the Champions League.

In a 1–0 home victory over Manchester City on 25 November 2015, Evra made his 100th UEFA Champions League debut, becoming the second French player to do so after Thierry Henry.

In the last game of the 2015-16 Serie A season, Evra scored a goal on 14 May 2016, in a 5-0 home victory over Sampdoria, as Juventus celebrated winning the league title for a fifth consecutive time since the 2011-12 season. Evra agreed to a one-year contract extension with Juventus on 6 June 2016; the deal included an option for a one-year further extension.


Evra joined


on a free transfer on 25 January 2017, agreeing with an 18-month deal with the club. Evra was sent off for hitting a spectating Marseille fan in the head in the warm-up accompanying a Europa League match on 2 November 2017, who allegedly "ridiculing" him while he trained.

Coach Rudi Garcia from Marseille was critical of the fans, but also criticized Evra for responding to the provocation.

He was banned from playing indefinitely in Marseille on 3 November, the day after Evra's altercation with a fan, pending an interview with the player about his actions and an inquiry before any other penalties were levied on him. Marseille issued a statement about the incident, criticizing the actions of Evra.

As a result, he has also issued a complaint of abusive actions from UEFA. Evra also obtained a UEFA suspension that made him unavailable until June 2018 to play in all UEFA competitions. Marseille subsequently, with immediate effect, ended the Evra deal.

West Ham United

West Ham United released Evra on a free transfer on 7 February 2018. Until the end of June 2018, he signed a deal. On 24 February, he made his debut against Liverpool. When his deal expired at the end of the season, Evra left West Ham United, having made five appearances for the club.

Before eventually declaring his retirement from professional football in July 2019, Evra was a free agent for a year.

Patrice Evra Personal Life

At this time, the identity of Patrice Evra's mother is uncertain, and the name of his father is under investigation. Evra was born to a father of Guinean descent and Juliette, a Cape Verdean mother, in Dakar, the capital city of Senegal. He is one of 25 children in all, but two are now dead. In order to get a job in France, one of his siblings, Mamadou, changed his name to Claude.

Evra's father was a diplomat, and he moved to Brussels, Belgium, when Evra was a year old, to serve at the Senegalese embassy. After living in Belgium for more than two years, the family moved to France when Evra was three and settled in Les Ulis, a commune south of Paris.

Before moving to the Hautes Plaines quarter soon after, the family first settled in the nearby neighborhood of Bergeries. The Senegalese culture and ideals that soon became "Westernised" were raised by Evra. He returned to Senegal for a brief time at the age of 10, labeling the return as "not a good experience" largely because he went back to the country to undergo circumcision.

As of 2011, he has not returned to the region.

Evra announced that he had suffered racist harassment from fans of the Senegalese national team for wanting to internationally represent France over his country of birth ahead of the 2010 World Cup. Evra is allergic to eggs, a disease that Juventus did not know until he was tested.

In college, Evra received strong marks. Evra is married to Sandra, with whom Lenny has a son, and Maona has a daughter. Evra and his wife are divorced as of 2020 and he is engaged to Margaux Alexandra, the Danish model. He speaks five languages: French, English, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese, his native.

Evra took part in the Guus Hiddink Foundation's Shoot for Love Challenge, which raises important funds for children suffering from cancer.

Evra denied making homophobic remarks against Paris Saint-Germain in March 2019. He has since said he wants to make gay and female players' football more accepting and has been seen at home games for Manchester United Women.
