Evra spoke passionately on Tuesday at UEFAâ€™s pre-match press conference about the need to perform well against Olympiacos and do justice to the clubâ€™s proud traditions.
He invoked similar sentiments following the Redsâ€™ 3-0 win on Wednesday and Unitedâ€™s progression to the competitionâ€™s last eight.
â€śIt was really important to show the love for this shirt, the respect for this shirt,â€ť he said.
â€śThatâ€™s why I think we won â€“ the spirit. Maybe some people will say Iâ€™m too old-school but I know when you have the Manchester United spirit you can make a difference and nothing is impossible.
â€śWhen you lose against a rival like Liverpool 3-0 at home and the fans still sing for you â€“ they never booed â€“ itâ€™s amazing.
"When I went home on Sunday I was so sad, so hurt inside. I couldnâ€™t wait for the [Olympiacos] game to give something back.
â€śWeâ€™ve had a tough season and the supporters have been fantastic. I say thank you to all the Manchester United fans. For me, they are the best in the world.â€ť
