Marseille boss Deschamps has only admiration for Man Utd fullback Evra
Evra is expected to be jeered by l'OM fans tonight over France's World Cup meltdown.
"Okay, Patrice Evra was the captain in South Africa but there were a lot of staff around him who were linked to that as well," said Deschamps.
"I prefer to remember what happened when he played for me at Monaco.
"I am really proud of what he has done since then at a great club like Manchester United."
