Evra: “Tevez has United blood like me”

Juventus Carlos TevezPatrice Evra has claimed that Carlos Tevez still has Manchester United in his blood after the Argentine scored to give Juventus a 2-1 lead against Real Madrid after the first leg of their Champions League semifinal.

Tevez left United in acrimonious circumstances to join City after Sir Alex Ferguson opted against signing the former Boca Juniors striker, before establishing himself as one of Serie A’s best players after a somewhat mixed spell on the blue side of Manchester.

After another excellent performance on Tuesday night, Evra, who joined his former teammate in the summer, claimed they both had “United blood” in their veins.

“Carlos Tevez is like myself, he has United blood. He’s a champion and he’s working hard, he’s a very good professional,” he said.

“I was very pleased to see him again and of course he’s had a fantastic year, but like you say we want to win this Champions League.

“We have done good stuff, in the first leg of the semi-final, and we need to make sure we get ready for the second leg.

“It’s going to be difficult but of course I’m really pleased for Carlito because he’s a massive professional.”
