Patrice Evra sends classy retirement message to Ashley Cole

At Manchester United, we’ve been blessed with two of the three best left-backs in the Premier League era. First Dennis Irwin then Patrice Evra.

Well, this week, Ashley Cole, the third member of the top three decided to hang up his boots for good.

It’s no debate that Cole is right up there amongst the best full-backs to ever grace these shores and his presence within our sport will certainly be missed.

Well today, Evra took to Instagram to send a classy message to his former rival – and it’s sheer brilliance from the Frenchman.

These guys were once fierce enemies when both United and Chelsea were battling for league titles, but to know that they’re now working on their coaching badges together it’s great to see how close they’ve become.

At the end of the day, this is what football is about. These two have put in some incredible performances over the years and the mutual respect between them is excellent to see.

If either of these two goes on to coach or manage at the highest level, you can bet your bottom dollar that both will be successful if their playing careers are anything to go by.

Happy retirement, Ashley!
