Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has announced his retirement from football at the age of 38.

The ex-French international left-back confirmed his retirement from football earlier on Monday.

Patrice Evra had an eventful career with many trophies to show for his troubles.

His last club was Premier League club West Ham United whom he played five league games for last year.

Evra is widely regarded as a Manchester United legend after enjoying a glittering career at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman spent eight years at Manchester United from 2006 to 2014.

During his time as a Manchester United player, he won five Premier League titles, five Community Shield trophies, three League Cup titles as well as the 2008 Champions League title.

Patrice Evra and Manchester United won the 2008 Champions League title after they defeated Premier League rivals Chelsea on penalties in their final clash in Moscow.

Both sides had played out a 1-1 draw at the end of both regulation time and extra time.

During his stay at Old Trafford, the former French international star scored seven goals for the Red Devils in 273 Premier League games over an eight-year period.

At Juventus, Patrice Evra also won two Italian Serie A titles as well as two Coppa Italia titles.
