Evra held crunch Moyes talks ahead of West Ham deal

Patrice Evra admits he held clear-the-air talks with David Moyes before signing with West Ham United.

The pair didn't see eye-to-eye at Old Trafford before the Frenchman's departure for Juventus.

But after signing for Moyes this week, Evra told whufc.com: “I have known the manager since we were in Manchester and since the first meeting we had there, we have been straight and honest and it was the same when I saw him on Tuesday, talking straight and honest.

“He is really glad to see me and I am the same. I like to work hard for the Club, because that's the most important thing, but the manager is really important and I like to have a good relationship with every manager I play with.

“Even when I was in Manchester United, we had a great relationship and for me that will keep going on when I play for West Ham under him. I will just do the same.

“He trusts me and I trust him. Now, we can talk a lot but the most important thing is acting on the pitch."
