Man Utd icon Patrice Evra takes to Twitter to celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo anniversary

Premiership Picks

It seems so long ago now that Manchester United signed a young, up and coming Portuguese forward named Cristiano Ronaldo.

16 years ago that same Portuguese kid already looked like a world-breaker and soon, he definitely proved to be one with his performances.

When all is said and done, Ronaldo played 292 games for the Red Devils, bagging an incredible 118 goals and tallying an equally impressive 68 assists in the process.

During his time in England, he also put nine trophies in his cabinet, making him one of Manchester United’s most celebrated players.

And one other icon of the club, Patrice Evra, took to Twitter to pay tribute to the Portuguese superstar on his anniversary with the Manchester team, but he also did it in his own way.

Evra complimented Ronaldo by saying that “he’s a machine” but also took some time to rinse him as well, reminding everyone how he made the Frenchman work out when he was actually invited to lunch.

That just goes to show what a dedicated person the Portuguese actually is and how Evra is always ready for a joke or two, even with the best of them.
