Man Utd hero Evra: Benitez courageous to take Everton job

Manchester United hero Patrice Evra is full of praise for Rafa Benitez over his impact at Everton.

Benitez is preparing to take his struggling side into battle tonight at home against their in-form arch rivals, and his former club, Liverpool.

"Rafa is a true tactician, but I'm really surprised about him joining Everton," said Evra.

"I don't know what reception he'll get, playing against his old club is brave. It's going to be electric.

"He's a courageous man, I couldn't believe it until I saw it. He did such a good job for Liverpool; I don't think the Everton fans will forget that. As soon as he makes a mistake – that will be the reason that fans will use."
