Wily/nefarious kingmaker Patrice Evra has told fellow countryman, Samir ‘the Petit Prince’ Nasri, that he should seriously consider joining Manchester United this summer if the young midfielder wants to get his hands on a few trophies before the next ice age engulfs the Earth.
When asked about recent murmurs that United may try and prise Nasri from Arsene Wenger’s grasp over the summer, Evra told L’Equipe:
“Really? I didn’t know (about the Nasri rumours). Anyway, if Samir comes (to United), he has to know there is no room for mistakes. Each year you are playing to win. That is Manchester’s culture.
“Each year it is a guarantee of a title. I have been at Manchester for five years now and I can’t remember how many trophies I have won. 13? 15?
“So, ‘Petit Prince’, if you want to become King you know where you have to go.”
There we go. Paddy at his merde-stirring best – he really seems to bring his ‘A’ game when Arsenal are concerned.
Anyone actually see Nasri upping-sticks for Old Trafford over the next few months or is Evra just talking a load of old shoeshine?
