#India 🇮🇳 can you hear me ? 🤣😍🤣” read his caption. Thus, it didn’t take too long for his post to go viral. Not only Indian fans, but people from all over the world were in awe of Evra talking and behaving like an Indian. Besides, he was wearing a traditional kurta as well.

As a matter of fact, he then went on to post a story of himself eating the local sugarcane as well. Such wholesome activities meant that the 42-year-old has been constantly roaming around the streets of Mumbai. As far as his visit is concerned, he was seen attending a few events as well


Evra recently spoke about how the fans of Manchester United are tired of their dismal run in the recent past. He drew light on having faith in the club. Further on, he felt that a manager needs to have good communication.

“The fans are tired. The fans are angry. The fans are upset. I have to accept that. When people ask me, Patrice, why don’t you come back to the club?’ I have to say sorry for what we are doing, but the story never ends. We should have faith in the club, and I know we keep saying the same things, if United fans are angry right now, so am I, because it’s like a rollercoaster. You never know what’s going to happen when we watch the team,” said Evra, as quoted by mid-day.

“A manager needs to have good communication. When I spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson, he used to say, Patrice, forget the tactics. You need to be able to talk to people the way you can bring the best out of them.’ We sacked around five managers, but the players have still been at the club. Maybe, we need a massive clear out of the squad. To be a successful manager at Manchester United, you need to be very strong mentally,” he added
