Patrice Evra Offers Out Former Teammate After He Criticised His Celebration At PSG-United Game
Patrice Evra did not take kindly to criticism from one of his former teammates, posting a video message on Instagram and threatening to fight him.
Jerome Rothen, who he played with at Monaco back in the day, was not a fan of the manner in which Evra celebrated Manchester United's stunning Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain and did not hold back.
The former Juventus left-back was in the stands with the suspended Paul Pogba for the game and the two went crazy at the final whistle, capturing it on camera.
But Rothen, who made 180 appearances for PSG, took issue with it and aired his thoughts.
"Patrice Evra, who allows himself to make a video like that in the square, PSG's presidential platform, in front of Paris supporters, the shareholders of PSG ... but you respect who my coconut?" Rothen said speaking to RMC Sport post-match.
"Let him celebrate, ok, let me know that he has marked the history of the club, ok, but respect him, let him make his videos outside or in the locker room, be happy, ok, we agree (...) Frankly Patrice, it's my friend, but do not do that."
Evra responded by making a NINE minute video (no raw chickens are visible this time) and he's told Rothen that he's gonna slap him next time they cross paths.
Patrice Evra has responded to ex teammate Jerome Rothen who accused him of showing a lack of respect for celebrating United's win over PSG.
"As soon as I cross you I'm going to give you a good slap in the face and you know I'm not speaking for nothing."

"I was told Jerome said some nasty things about me," Evra commented, as per ESPN.
"I didn't believe it but then I was shown the video. Your reward, next time I see you, I'm going to slap you in the face.
"These aren't empty threats. You know we'll see each other eventually. You were always a salty prick. I remember when L'Equipe gave you a rating of five and our other team-mates got seven, since you were paranoid of the ratings, you would call the journalist and ask: 'Why didn't you give me a seven?'
"Piece of shit. Stop telling bullshit, stop telling lies. Be careful, because we will cross roads eventually. I am sure we will."
Evra may "love this game" but he definitely does not enjoy being criticised. Their next encounter could be very, very ugly...
