PATRICE EVRA went as wild in the stands as any fan on the night Old Trafford recaptured the joy of his own glory nights.
The ex-Manchester United defender was caught roaring with delight and punching the air as Antony sealed Barcelona’s Europa League KO.
Evra posted “Let’s go!” along with a clip of himself rejoicing after the Brazilian sub cracked a scintillating winner.
The Frenchman won the Champions League in 2008 plus five Premier League titles during eight years with United.
So Evra knows what it feels to experience an evening that former Red Devils’ team-mate Paul Scholes reckons provided the finest atmosphere since Alex Ferguson‘s golden reign as manager.
And the ex-West Ham ace’s social media post clocked up 12,500 likes within two hours as fans loved the glimpse of a on-pitch icon becoming an in-stand inspiration.
One wrote: “Great to see our legends happy again.”
Another said: “Just like you. The club is already under his skin. There’s nothing on earth like being a red.”
