The Modern Fullback Patrice Evra

95 0

Lung-bursting runs are a deadly weapon for fullbacks like Patrice Evra. See how the Manchester United defender arms himself in pre-season for all the big soccer matches that await him.

Evra will go down as one of the best fullbacks ever to play the game. He’s unique in that he can get up and down the field and not just defend. He was perhaps one of the first fullbacks to take on that type of role, attacking and defending.

 

What’s more, Evra is consistently good every game. He wins the ball and keeps position, so the team can start to attack. You’d have to put Evra up there with the best back in the game, Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Dani Alves, Marcelo and Philipp Lahm.
