Patrice Evra reveals he will discuss ‘complicated’ Man United exit when he retires

Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has confirmed that he will reveal the details of his “complicated” exit from Old Trafford when he finally hangs up his boots, the Daily Express reports.

The 34-year-old departed the club in the summer of 2014 for a move to Italian giants Juventus, just two months after initially signing a one-year contract extension with the Red Devils (via Express).

And now the veteran Frenchman has claimed that a new clause in his contract forced him to out the door for the sake of his family, though he stopped short at revealing the full extent of the details.

Evra has insisted that he does not regret joining Juventus despite lifting 15 trophies during an eight-year stint at Old Trafford, but confessed that he is still annoyed at how his United career came to a close.

“It’s still hard to talk about my exit,” Evra told French broadcaster RMC. “But one day, when my career is over, I’ll be able to speak more openly about it.

“I came to Turin above all for my family because at Manchester they had inserted a clause in our agreement which changed the situation considerably.

“It really annoyed me. But I don’t regret this move, which in the end has proven to be more than positive.”
