Manchester United look set to offer Patrice Evra an ambassadorial role at the club.
The Frenchman has been a constant presence at Old Trafford lately, as he was frequently seen attending numerous Manchester United games along with club vice-executive, Ed Woodward.
First-team coach Jose Mourinho has also shown a lot of faith in the former left-back, handing him the freedom to visit the Red Devils’ dressing room area.
Evra’s consistent presence had led many sources to believe that the Mancunian outfit was considering him for the brand new role of the director of football. But now, a new update seems to suggest otherwise.
The former club captain, who won 5 Premier League trophies and a Champions League title with the Reds under the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, is quite a beloved figure at the Theatre of Dreams.
Further, his jovial nature and interesting social media posts, wherein he frequently uses the phrase “I love this game,” have also made him quite a popular personality amongst the global footballing fanbase.
Evra shares a good relationship with several players from the current United squad as well, and all these factors make him quite an obvious and deserving candidate to represent one of the biggest football clubs on the entire planet.
