Man Utd fullback Evra challenges Obertan: Time to prove yourself

Patrice Evra was delighted for Manchester United teammate Gabriel Obertan after his goal scoring performance in victory at Bursaspor.

The moment was a long time coming following Obertan's £3million move from Bordeaux last July.

Injuries have plagued him since and the odd run-out suggested nothing of what came from his right foot on Tuesday.

Evra said: "It was his best performance and I'm really pleased with him as he's working hard.

"I keep talking with him every day and tell him to take his chance.

"He showed his potential at Bursaspor but now the most difficult part is coming.

"I keep telling him 'It's not easy at United but you are still young and have a lot of quality'.

"He is like my younger brother and that's why I hope he doesn't get too sleepy because now is the time to show he has the potential to play for Manchester United."
