The former player of Manchester United, Patrice Evra signed a one year long contract extension with the Premier League club that would allow the French defender on playing with Manchester United at least until the summer of 2015 but his spell at Old Trafford was cut short after Luke Shaw was signed by Louis van Gaal and the Dutchman made a series of changes which saw a number of players making their way out of the English club.
Patrice Evra went on to join the Italian club, Juventus as he penned a 2 year contract.
The veteran French defender made his official league debut as a player of Juventus during the clubs’ match against Udinese which finished in a 2-0 victory for the squad which is being guided by their new coach Massimiliano Allegri.
This is the first time that Evra has played in a top Italian club and even though his journey in Italy and in the Serie A is just starting, Evra has already unfolded details about how tough it has been playing in a new league, new club and new country. Juve have a great chance of winning the league according to williamhill.com.
“In the training sessions I’m working a lot, I have never worked so much in life. The difference is that the game is less intense, but more tactical. You must be most concentrated and being attentive on to things, which comes from extra training. It is incredible. Pogba told me about the stadium, I’d never played here and the fans were amazing’’ Pogba told the media during his first press conference as a player of the Italian club.
Patrice Evra is reaching the final few seasons and years of his career and he wants to end it on a high note by securing the second Champions League. During the season of 2007-08, Evra lifted his first and only Champions League title as a player of Manchester United but the Frenchman wants to revive that experience by winning it once more but this time with his new club Juventus.
