Bellamy: Why did West Ham sign Evra?

Former Wales striker Craig Bellamy has questioned West Ham's deal for Patrice Evra.

The Frenchman, who made over 40 appearances under David Moyes at Manchester United, reunited with his former manager this week on a free transfer.

"He hasn't been the same player in the past four or five years," Bellamy told Sky Sports.

“His last year at Juventus was really poor, and he isn't the same player he was when he was at Manchester Utd four years ago.

"Age catches up with you, and he's in that position.

“It's a great move for him and his experience will be great for a club like West Ham, but I don't believe they're going to get much out of him playing-wise."
