Man Utd ace proud to be captain

The 28-year-old lifted the trophy, following United’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

“Being the second Frenchman to lift a trophy for United, after Cantona, is a great pride,” Evra told L’Equipe.

“I want to thank the manager, the players and the staff. They believe I have the soul of a leader. I was not looking after that, but if I have been given the armband, I get it.”

Evra was full of praise for United manager Sir Alex Ferguson after the game

“He told me: ‘Pat, you are part of that team’s leaders, you are my captain, it is up to you take on.’ I was so proud,” said Evra.

“We have a very good relationship, but don’t talk about daddy’s boy! As long as I do my job, we can laugh, but the day I miss a match, I get a hair dryer.”
