Patric Evra has returned to Manchester United to complete his coaching badges after officially announcing his retirement from playing this summer.

Evra played alongside Paul Pogba at Juventus and France and has given him strict instructions.

Pogba took to his Instagram story to welcome his pal back to the club, referring to Evra as “uncle” and admitting that he was “really, really happy” to have the legendary defender back in Manchester.

A serious Evra, seemingly adapting to his new role, replied: “You can call me uncle, but just be serious, we are here to work really hard,” before saying “I love you” which prompted a smile from the United playmaker.
