Patrice Evra on Nemanja Vidic feud

Patrice Evra has revealed he fell out with Nemanja Vidic in their early days at Manchester United and the pair didn't talk for months.

"We arrived at the same time and we struggled together. We were at the same hotel, I remember, and we were so bad at the beginning, me and him.

"The manager sent us to play with the Reserves and the coach was Rene [Meulensteen]. After 45 minutes, he subbed us – in the Reserves! In the dressing room, Vida was saying, 'My agent called me, I need to go back to Moscow.' Also, my agent called me and said they had [interest from] AS Roma. It was difficult here.

"So we struggled together. It’s why I have a lot of respect for Vida."

"To be honest, we also fought. We had a fight – me and him – and didn’t speak for three months. We played together and we didn’t even say a word. I never told him to go left or go right. He was the same. Ferguson had to swap Rio Ferdinand to play on the left side with me!

"It was like that for three months until, after a game, I remember he came to me in the dressing room and gave me a high-five. Everyone was like 'finally' because we were best friends together, Vida and me. We have a deep story together.

"I love him so much. We struggled but we were really real, me and him. If we were doing something wrong, we’d argue but, in the same way, it was a really great relationship."
