Manchester United legend Patrice Evra revealed a fiery conversation he had with Sir Alex Ferguson that left the boss fuming on the sidelines.
The Frenchman spent nine seasons at Old Trafford, winning five Premier League titles and a Champions League honour.
He spent all but his last year with Sir Alex, who was famous for his “hairdryer” treatment in the Red Devils dressing room.
But Evra shared a conversation on Instagram between the pair the left the Scot raging on the sidelines at his own player.
Accompanying a snap of the 78-year-old raging at the former full-back as he walks away, the Frenchman writes: “[sic] PLAY FOWARD.
“Boss: Patrice are you tired?
“Me: No boss why?
“Boss: Do you think you are playing well?
“Me: Yes I’m playing very well!
“Boss: This is one of the worst games I’ve seen you play since I signed you.
“Me: Are you serious boss?
“Boss: Why did you pass the ball back to Edwin [van der Sar]?
“Me: Because I didn’t have any solution forward.
“Boss: If you pass the ball back again, you’re out!”
But the game did end well for the full-back, revealing that he picked up the man of the match award at full time.
It comes as Evra recalled a moment when he stood up to the legendary United manager when he was not included in a squad to face Stoke.
When Ferguson told Evra he wanted to rest him against Stoke, Evra told Ferguson: “I will rest when I die. I’m playing this game.”
Ferguson replied: “Sorry, I’ve already picked the team.” Evra insisted he was the only defender who could out-jump Peter Crouch.
The former full-back told The Guardian: “He didn’t say anything.“The day of the game he put the team up and I was starting.
“I played a great game. Afterwards he shakes my hand and say: ‘Patrice, you’ve got balls.’
Evra’s latest Instagram post picked up several likes from fans – and United transfer target Alex Telles.
