first_img0Shares0000Patrice Evra left Marseille in disgrace after assaulting a fan before a Europa League game in Portugal in November © AFP/FileLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 7 – West Ham signed former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra on a free transfer on Wednesday, with the Frenchman set to link up again with former boss David Moyes.Evra has won multiple league titles and the Champions League in an illustrious career but his spell at Marseille ended abruptly in November after he launched a kung-fu kick at a supporter. Evra, who joins the Hammers on a contract until the end of June, worked with Hammers manager Moyes during his time at Old Trafford and is looking forward to linking up with his old boss.“Im really happy to be a Hammer, to be back in the Premier League and I love this game,” said the left-back.“When you have to make a deal and money is not the issue, the deal could be done in five minutes,” added the Evra in a statement on the club’s website. “The main thing was for me to join West Ham and to help my teammates to win as many games as we can.“It was the fastest thing I have done in my life, because both parties wanted to work together, so it was very easy to make an agreement.”West Ham are 12th in the Premier League with 12 matches to play, but are only three points above the teams in 18th and 19th, two of the three relegation places.Evra’s departure from France came after he lashed out in response to a group of supporters who had come to the pitchside to berate him for what they considered sub-par displays.The 36-year-old, capped 81 times by France, was hit with a season-long ban that only applies to UEFA club competitions.Alex Ferguson took the Senegal-born player to Manchester United from Monaco in January 2006, and won five Premier League titles and the Champions League.After spending his final season at Old Trafford working under Moyes, the defender moved to Italian champions Juventus in 2014 and enjoyed more domestic success before moving back to France in January 2017.Evra’s career has been dogged by controversy, not all of his making. At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa he led a revolt of the French players against coach Raymond Domenech.A year later, while playing for United, Evra was the target of a racist insult from then Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan was banned for eight matches and fined over the incident.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


first_imgDaniel checks out of StrictlyDaniel ‘Donnell has admitted that he would never take part in Strict Come Dancing again.Although the singing sensation said he met so many friends on the BBC show, he admitted that he was just ‘crippled’ by nerves.“I was absolutely terrified every week. I can’t begin to tell you the feeling I had when I was waiting to dance. “If it was only the live show then I certainly wouldn’t do it again. That’s not because there was anybody who didn’t make me enjoy it.“It’s only because of my  nerves. I would always be nervous but I never woke up in the morning and would be nervous – that would be crippling for me,” he told Highland Radio.The 53 year old was voted off the show on Sunday night to the shock of his thousands of fans.Daniel said he could not believe how kind his fans were to him and how much they supported him in his time n the show. But he said he wanted to save a special mention for his dance partner Kristina.Daniel jumped to the Russian dancer’s defence and called his an “absolute gem.”“Kristina is an absolute gem. I feel so bad for her that she gets so much negative press but the girl I have spent all that time learning to dance with is an absolute treasure.“I hope that will be seen by people who make judgements because simply of what they read in the papers,” said gentleman Daniel.And the star said he was now looking forward to getting back to his native Donegal. “I’m so looking forward to getting back t Donegal and the people. There is nobody like them. I’m looking forward to going back to playing cards in Kincaslagh and the ceili in Ardara. Being from home is just fantastic,” he said.DANIEL – ‘I WOULD NEVER DO STRICTLY AGAIN’ was last modified: October 19th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
