“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]?

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.”
