Champions League winner Evra: Conte should be in charge of Man Utd not Tottenham

Manchester United Champions League winner Patrice Evra is sorry seeing Antonio Conte managing at Tottenham.

Evra would've liked to have seen his former Juventus coach at Old Trafford.

He told the Mirror: "It hurts my heart. Because I think Conte, [Jurgen] Klopp, [Pep] Guardiola - all those managers are the best in the world right now and we could have had him at Manchester United.

"But some people at the club, they said: 'It's not our style, it's not what we're looking for.'

"So, let's see, now we have Erik ten Hag. Let's see what he's going to do. He has my support.

"But then, even if you brought a chef in, as the manager of Man United, he'd have my full support."

Evra added on Conte: "It's a massive disappointment because he could have done something at Man United.

"And you can see with Tottenham, he helped them to qualify for the Champions League.

"That's why I say it hurts. Not because it's Tottenham - I love every team - but it's just because Conte could have done something."
