Patrice Evra – born 15 May 1981 – is a professional footballer who played for Manchester United and West Ham United.

Originally an attacker, he primarily plays as a left back. Evra, whom Sir Alex Ferguson praised for his leadership, also describing him as one of the best left backs in Europe, has served as captain for both Manchester United and France.

Evra was born in Dakar, the capital city of Senegal, to a father of Guinean descent and Juliette, a Cape Verdean mother. He is one of a total of 25 children, although two are now deceased.
