Former French star Patrice Evra revealed in an interview with Maui Jim that a quarrel with his colleague Nemanja Vidic lasted for three months in which the two players barely spoke to each other.
The French and Serbian stars overcame embarrassing periods in their careers at Old Trafford before proving their true worth and winning the Champions League in 2008, among many other major titles.
Evra said: “The situation was so bad after a ‘fight’ during Sir Alex Ferguson’s era that he switched Ferdinand’s position to the left side instead of Vidic.
“Fortunately, we made up and are still friends today. After he joined United around the same time,” he added.
“We arrived at the same time and fought together,” Evra continued, “we were staying in the same hotel, I remember, and we were really bad at first, me and him.” The dressing room, Vida was saying, “My agent called me, I have to go back to Moscow.” Also, my agent called me and told me Roma was interested in me. It was tough here,” “so we struggled together. That’s why I have so much respect for Vida.”
