Manchester United fans already absolutely loved Patrice Evra as it is, but upon hearing of the words of wisdom he passed on to Anthony Martial, comfortably Manchester United's most exciting player right now, that love is set to grow once more.
It's not just that he was regularly cracking people up with his stories about his best mate Park Ji-Sung, or being one of the very best left-backs around during his peak, Paddy Evra truly fell in love with Manchester United during his time there, and it's clear that nothing has changed in that regard.
Anthony Martial hails from the same town as Patrice Evra and played for the same youth club as the former France captain, so naturally he sought some advice before making the move. If he had any doubts before, he wouldn't have had them after a quick chat with Evra:
He lives in the same town as me in France and has only ever had good things to say to me about the club.
He told me it was a club of champions, a club that above else wants to win and certainly since I've arrived here I've felt that for myself too. So I hope that this year we are going to manage to win something.
He talks about us all the time and he's told me that he spent his very best years as a player here so I reckon he is still very attached to this club.
Martial has made an impressive start to life at Manchester United after the circus that surrounded his signing from AS Monaco. After initially being utilised as a striker, which many believe is his best position, he has since been shifted out onto the left-wing where he continues to provide a spark with his pace and ability to take on a defender one-on-one.
He still has a way to go for his transfer fee not to be mentioned by commentators every time he scores, but there's no doubt that United fans are very happy to have him at the club, and it will surely raise a smile to find out that Patrice Evra had a helping hand in the background.
