Evra: Honour to be leading Man Utd

Patrice Evra is proud to be captaining Manchester United in Nemanja Vidic's absence.

The France fullback is United's permanent captain while Vidic recovers from his knee injury.

"Of course I am proud," he commented on being given the job.

"It is a privilege to be the captain of this team. But it is a big responsibility.

"You have to show the example on the pitch and sometimes out of it as well."
