Patrice Evra Tells Manchester United Players To Expect 'Broken Legs' In Derby Day Warning
Patrice Evra knows all about the intense rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool.
The former Juventus and West Ham United star took to Instagram to warn Red Devils players that their opponents will try to "break your legs."
"Good morning!!! Anfield @Liverpool olfc [sic] tough place to go..." he wrote.
"Electric atmosphere if you're a real Manchester United player it's time to play with your... because expect them to break your legs... and I'm still looking [for] the Manchester United fan [who] threw me that fake arm when we were celebrating our 20th Premier League title."
Don't worry, folks. Relax.
It's not as strange as the 37-year-old Frenchman's Thanksgiving Day video that he posted on Instagram. At least Evra came out to clear up that video, saying that he went "too far when I sucked the toes of the chicken."
José Mourinho's side will take on Jürgen Klopp's men at Anfield today.
United are sixth in the Premier League after 16 matches, while Liverpool are second and would be able to reclaim the top spot from Manchester City with a win over their rivals.
Ahead of the match, the former Chelsea boss spoke about the money spent by Liverpool and the importance of winning trophies.
"It's not just about spending money and reinforcing the squad, a football team is more than that," he said.
"It's like a house. It's not just about buying the furniture, you have to do work, you spend money on the best possible furniture and then you're ready to live in an amazing house.
"I think trophies matter, it matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy.
"I think sometimes to just say it is not very intelligent, but when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one your potential and your desire has a relation with the potential."
Who will win out of Liverpool and United?
