Liverpool Legends ran out 3-1 victors, after Luis Garcia scored and Mark Gonzalez got a brace. Dimitar Berbatov scored a penalty for United Legends, but that ended up being the only goal for Bryan Robson’s side on the day.
Evra displayed the same energy he was renowned for during his playing days, producing some driving runs down the United left.
Reacting to the match, he said: “When you show up, you have to show up in a good condition, good health, especially it was like for the Manchester United Foundation. But when you wear that jersey, you have to give everything no matter if you play or if you are not playing anymore.
”But, [I feel] mixed emotion because I always feel happy, but also sad because all connected and all the fans still want to play. It’s just amazing. I feel grateful to be here and unfortunately, we didn’t win against Liverpool, but we’ve got the second leg in Anfield.”
