Man Utd fullback Evra simply loves USA

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra admits he loves the 'States.

United will be playing in the USA during preseason.

Evra wrote in a column for manutd.com: "I've always loved visiting America. Every year I go on holiday I spend maybe one or two weeks in the States.

"I've been all over the country, to Texas, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando, New York, Chicago... and there are still many other places I'd like to see.

"One of my favourite memories is the trip I took to the Grand Canyon. We took a helicopter and stopped off for lunch. It was incredibly hot, but an amazing experience.

"There's always a great vibe in America and, especially in the big cities, I love all the tall buildings. It's hard to pick a favourite city, but New York is a special place. The atmosphere there is fantastic. You've got people dancing in the street and enjoying themselves - there's a lot of energy about the place. And there are lots of different cultures throughout the States: English, Italian, Irish, French - it's very international."
