"When France lost to Scotland, Sir Alex Ferguson spent the whole week singing La Marseillaise at me," revealed Evra. "My locker then got tagged with 'Kiss My Scottish Arse'! But I didn't say anything. I waited.

"Recently, it's got a little spicy over this France-England match.

"Wayne Rooney told me: 'I'm gonna ask to play down your flank if you get picked, Pat. Just so that I can tackle you.' That's the English spirit - no presents!"

He added: "My first six months here, they didn't get to see the real Evra. Despite that, every time I came on the pitch, I got applause. That gave me strength.

"Now things are much better and now I'm kind of the team DJ. I bring in new tunes and I create special mixes.

"I even introduced the lads to the singer who won the French 'Pop Idol', Christophe Willem - and I've heard our coaches singing the chorus on his biggest hit in French.

"It goes [singing]: 'C'est comme ca, qu'est-ce que j'y peux' (It's just like that, what can you do?)'."
