Patrice Evra has taken a ruthless swipe at Manchester City following their Champions League final defeat by Chelsea by using a photoshopped image of him and Sir Bobby Charlton to ‘check for’ their name on the trophy.
Pep Guardiola’s men failed to secure a treble this season after losing 1-0 to Thomas Tuchel’s men in Porto, with Kai Havertz scoring the only goal of the game to secure the Blues’ second Champions League win following their 2012 success.
A win for City would have seen them claim their first ever Champions League crown but they ultimately came up short, missing out on a famous treble after their Premier League and Carabao Cup successes.
And former Manchester United left-back Evra was clearly delighted by their city rivals’ failure, with the Frenchman sharing an image on Instagram of Charlton and his face photoshopped on top of Jimmy Ryan’s face along with the Champions League trophy.
The former France defender then led with the caption: ‘Sir Bobby can you check for City’s name again? Nope, still not here Pat… I love this game.’
The original photo that Evra photoshopped is a photo of former Scottish star Ryan and 1966 World Cup winner Sir Bobby Charlton looking at the European Cup at Old Trafford, after United had beaten Benfica 4-1 in the 1967-68 final at Wembley.
Evra, 40, enjoyed the same triumph as Charlton and Ryan exactly 40 years later after Sir Alex Ferguson’s side inflicted the only defeat Chelsea have suffered in a Champions League final in Moscow on penalties.Photo Credit: Getty
