Patrice Evra Pays Tribute To Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger
April 23, 2018
Patrice Evra has paid tribute to outgoing Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after the Gunners’ 4-1 win over West Ham on Sunday.
Nacho Monreal opened the scoring at the Emirates Stadium only for Marko Arnautovic to equalise. Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette wrapped up the points late on.
Shall we dance, Arsene? Rivals over the years but massive mutual respect ? merci ?? pic.twitter.com/gZV0sfQlJ4— Patrice Evra (@Evra) April 22, 2018
There was an emotional atmosphere in the stadium after Friday’s announcement that Wenger would be leaving the club after 22 years in charge. The animosity that has met him over the past few years appeared to have died down.
Evra, who joined West Ham in January after leaving Marseille, paid tribute to the Gunners boss after the game, having embraced him during the warm up.
Like many former Manchester United players, Evra acknowledged their rivalry, but couldn’t stop an outpouring of respect for his fellow Frenchman.
Arsenal will hope to win the Europa League to send Wenger off on a high. They face Atletico Madrid in the semi final first leg on Thursday.
