Patrice Evra’s last season was his worst personally and the club’s worst as well; the abomination under David Moyes.
Yet, there is no doubt that he is still held in very high regard among the Old Trafford fanbase and there was genuine excitement in some quarters when he raised the prospect of returning to the club last year.
The left-back, now valued at £900k by Transfermarkt, is currently reunited with Moyes at West Ham United where the pair are now battling relegation.
Despite the intensity of the situation – on and off the pitch – at the London Stadium, Evra has taken some time out to share some cheer over Easter with ill children at nearby Newham Hospital.
Hammers fans might be slightly concerned by the distraction at a time of intense pressure but Man United fans absolutely lapped it up and enjoyed the reminder of what they were missing at their club.
We’ve taken a closer look at the best of the reaction…
top red, that Patrice.
