Patrice Evra snubs two all-time Manchester United greats as he picks ultimate XI from club career

Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has snubbed a couple of all-time Man Utd greats as he named his ultimate club career XI on punditry duty with Sky Sports last night.

The Frenchman was in the Sky studio to comment on the Arsenal game, but also spoke about several other topics.

As you can see below, Evra was asked to name his ultimate XI from team-mates he played alongside in his career, which presumably doesn’t include the French national team or that’s even more controversial snubs!

Intriguingly, however, Evra has still not found room for Wayne Rooney or Nemanja Vidic in his line up, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez up front in a 4-4-2, while former Juventus team-mate Giorgio Chiellini partners Rio Ferdinand in central defence.

Patrice Evra’s ultimate XI

Of course, this is still a quality team and it would be hard to leave out a world class defender like Chiellini in particular, but Tevez over Rooney is perhaps a more questionable choice.

Again, that’s not to question the quality of the Argentine, who was immense for Man Utd for some time, though for a shorter period than Rooney.

He also controversially left United for rivals Manchester City, so it’s not clear this selection will go down too well with Red Devils supporters.
