Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has confirmed that he is in talks with Ed Woodward about taking up a role at Manchester United.
The Manchester United CEO has already said that he has looked over prospects like Darren Fletcher and Edwin Van der Sar for the Director of Football role. On Monday night, Evra confirmed that he has been contemplating a return to the club, albeit he stopped short of specifying the nature of his job.
“I retired five months ago and I thought maybe I will now enjoy my life but no, I’m doing my coaching badges with Manchester United,” said Evra.
“But I want to make it clear because some people think i’m already working for United but no, there’s been some talks. But at the moment I’m only doing my badges. I know everyone is excited to see me back at the club.”
“It’s about that [the club],” said Evra.
“I’m having some important talks behind the scenes and we’ll decide whether I will work for the club in a certain role or not we’ll see.”
“We don’t know yet I want to do everything but in life, you can’t do everything but a role where I can get my hands dirty.”
“If I come back to the club it’s not just to put my face on it it’s to make sure that the club is going back to being the best club in the world. As a player, I sacrificed my life to succeed at this club. I don’t know which role I have but I will do the same.”
