Evra joins West Ham

Wed, Feb. 7, 2018
CAIRO – 7 February 2018: West Ham United announced on Wednesday that the club has reached an agreement with French defender Patrice Evra to join the club. Evra signed a short-term contract with the club that ends by the end of this season.

“I'm really happy to be a Hammer, to be back in the Premier League. It's amazing to be back and I am thankful to West Ham for giving me the opportunity to do my job,” Evra told the club’s official website after signing his new contract.

Evra, 36, played in the Premier League between 2006 and 2014, wearing the Manchester United jersey. He also shared the dressing room with current West Ham coach David Moyes when they both worked together in 2014 in Manchester.

Evra was a free agent after he was sacked by his former club, Marseille, for kicking a fan, and he was banned by the UEFA from European tournaments until June 2018, but he is eligible to play in the domestic competitions.

Evra spoke about his happiness after he completed the deal with West Ham, saying, “When I wake up and know I am going to work hard, to have fun with my teammates and give my best on the pitch, I want to say a massive thanks to West Ham, to the chairman, to the manager, to all my teammates who have given me a nice welcome.”

Evra has achieved five Premier League titles, five FA Community shields and three League Cup titles during his time in England with Manchester United.
