Domenech: Evra now soul of Man Utd

France coach Raymond Domenech is happy to have handed the World Cup captaincy to Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra.

Domenech hopes that by appointing the popular left-back, the rest of the squad will be lifted and play to their potential.

"Patrice has been the soul of Manchester United," said Domenech.

"When, as a manager, you study Sir Alex Ferguson's club, you can only try to copy it.

"With Patrice's character, he gives you something - he sets the tone for the entire team."
