A Brentham FC spokesman posted this on Twitter: “It was a real privilege to have @Evra train and play for us.

“He needed some minutes ahead of the Soccer Aid charity match for @UNICEF taking place at @ManUtd Old Trafford next month.”

Evra was at Old Trafford for eight years until 2014.

He won the Champions League in 2008, along with five Premier League crowns.

Evra left Old Trafford for Juventus, then played for Marseille, West Ham, Monaco and Nice.

But he insists he never wanted to leave United and only joined Juve as he felt “betrayed” by Ed Woodward.

He said: “I felt betrayed by Ed. I called Juventus to tell them I am coming.

“Ed then said: ‘We offer you a two-year contract, more money, the captaincy, a testimonial.’

“Too late [to renege on his agreement with Juventus]. [In June 2015] my ex-wife said: ‘See? Manchester are nearly in the Championship and you’re in [the Champions League final].’

“I love Juventus but I said: ‘Even if they’re in the Championship, I prefer to be at United. Nothing can replace my love for them.’”

Evra retired in 2018 after a career spanning 18 years and over 660 matches.
